RefugeAid aims to make a tangible and sustained difference in the lives of refugees in Northern Lebanon through raising $10,000 by March 31, 2013 to help provide emergency relief and primary health care.
Our mission is to come together as young Canadians of diverse backgrounds to help communities put at risk by the ongoing conflict along the Lebanon-Syria border. Our organization is not politically or religiously affiliated. It is a humanitarian initiative that brings together passionate and committed Canadian students, inspired by the idea of creating positive changes within their local and international communities.
RefugeAid is a project meant to contribute to the work of Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors without Borders (MSF) through an established relationship with the organization. MSF has been operating in Lebanon since January 2009.
RefugeAid is a student-run organization that was created as a response to the 2011-2012 UofMosaic Middle East Dialogue Series. The Mosaic Institute, based out of Toronto, provides mentorship to the leadership team of RefugeAid.
