Petition to Barack Obama, Theresa May MP, François Hollande, Angela Merkel

Help The People Of Syria

Attacks on medical facilities, starving families, hundreds and thousands of lives lost, and homes left behind in ruins. These are just a few of the barbarous events taking place. So far, there has been no significant change, and families are still going through things no family should ever go through. My goal is to get as many signatures to help those people who are currently struggling with the horrific situation in Aleppo, in hopes that many signatures could potentially result in world leaders acting fast to resolve this issue. Once this petition finally reaches 100 signatures, it will be sent to U.S. President Barack Obama, the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, the president of France, François Hollande, and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom/Leader of the Conservative Party, Theresa May MP.   A majority of the money accepted as donations will go to The White Helmets aka the Syrian Civil Defense, who are a group of volunteers risking their own lives to save Syrians in affected, nearby cities. They are currently in need of safety goggles, elbow and knee protectors, first aid kits, gas masks, fire extinguishers, and helmets. All other funds will be sent to ShelterBox and UNHCR. We must still have hope that change is, in fact, possible. That faith in humanity can be restored once again. We need to let our leaders know that something has to be done NOW. How could we possibly live our lives contently knowing that hospitals are being bombed, that hundreds are killing themselves each day to escape the atrocities taking place? I refuse to sit back & watch this happen in front of my very eyes without taking any kind of action. I will stand up and speak out for those who cannot. Join me in letting your voice be heard; Join me in doing as much as possible for our brothers and sisters who are facing traumatic experiences that they will be forced to remember for the rest of their lives. During times like these, taking any form of action to help or do good does much more than you may think. These people need our help, and they need it now. Thank you, and God bless you all.  Donations can be made here: https://www.gofundme.com/ts-help-the-people-of-syria Link to organizations:  https://www.whitehelmets.org/en https://www.shelterbox.org http://www.unhcr.org

Save Aleppo

As it stands, there are thousands of civilians left cold in the crossfire in Aleppo. The bare minimum we seek to do with this petition is ensure that they make it out safe.  In the past few days, air strikes, shelling and street-to-street combat in Syria, particularly in Aleppo’s eastern neighborhoods, have killed or injured scores of civilians. Since December 13th, thousands more fled the fighting in besieged eastern Aleppo with nothing more than the clothes on their back and their children in their arms. We write with urgency to request that you use the full authority of your office to convene international negotiations designed to stop the modern-day genocide in Syria, stabilize the country, effect the return to Syria of all refugees, provide for political change towards a popularly supported, accountable Syrian leadership, and hold Bashar Al-Assad’s regime accountable for all war crimes it has been inflicting upon the Syrian people. The international community must do everything they can to put a stop to this inhumane war. The Syrian regime must give safe passage to citizens trapped in the city and allow aid workers into Aleppo to save as many lives as they can. This is not politics, this is human rights. Please, let us not be responsible for witnessing genocide being committed on an entire city and not moving the masses in order to stop it.
