Saint John’s High School in Shrewsbury Massachusetts, an American catholic school, held a fund-raising event to benefit the suffering minority children of Syria.
Jack Hanna, a student at Saint John’s H.S., son of Wade and Rima (Chahan) Hanna, rallied hundreds of students and staff at his school and asked them to participate in a fund-raising event in order to help Syria’s suffering children. Jack explained his family and personal connection to the Christian people of Hay Al-Syrian neighborhood in the city of
Aleppo. He proposed to dedicate this event to help provide relief to those children. Due to the long civil war that has taken its toll on the children of Hay-Al-Syrian neighborhood, Jack expressed his desire to take action to relieve the dire need for food and water.
After an emotional plea by Jack Hanna, the students and staff of the school answered the call for help with enthusiasm and raised over $2400. The money was awarded to Wardet-Al-Mahaba, a charitable and humanitarian organization working to provide aid in Syria by distributing food, water and medicine to people in need.
Wardet-Al-Mahaba would like to thank Jack Hanna, the students, and staff at Saint John’s High School
. This act of human kindness will go very far in meeting the needs of children at this difficult time.
