An Act of Real Love | Young & Free

“The children of Syria have experienced more hardship, devastation, and violence than any child should have to in a thousand lifetimes”

Dr. Christine Latif, World Vision’s response manager.

It is devastating to see the sufferings of children in Syria and the Middle East. Sometimes it is difficult to reconcile how we were so lucky to be born into such blessing and prosperity while others are born into the grievance of war.

All I know is…
1. We must do something with the platform we are given.
2. This is near to the heart of God.
3. He would want us to do this.

So, while making the music video for REAL LOVE – we experienced a few delays for various reasons… But in meantime, I became much more involved and aware of the current plight of the middle-east and I believe that maybe God had something else in mind all along. I am so grateful for Gods timing and believe that regardless of the delays we may experience – this music video isn’t just meant to be in vain … but rather it’s timing is perhaps God-ordained for us to rise-up beyond ourselves and to extend this “REAL LOVE” across borders into circumstances that are unimaginable to us… I just wonder what kind of difference we can make?

What are we donating to?

The funds we raise together will go directly towards aiding Syrian refugee children & young people, in their education and schooling, thanks to our partnership with @WorldVisionUSA

“The decline in education for Syrian children has been the sharpest and most rapid in the history of the region, according to UNICEF. For children inside Syria, the reasons for halting education are many: schools destroyed or occupied by warring groups or displaced families, teachers absent or deceased, and insecurity. For refugee families who don’t live in camps, paying rent and other expenses can make it impossible for parents to afford transportation, books, and tuition for their children.”

“If the world continues to turn its back on Syria, it is the children who’ll continue to suffer the most.”
