Join the +United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the +International Rescue Committee to talk about what NGO's are doing on the ground in Syria and in neighboring countries to assist refugees caught in the crisis.

Hear what it takes to support more than 2 million Syrian refugees from aid agencies who are directly assisting them, inside Syria as well as in Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey. This special focus on the humanitarian response anticipates the release of a report assembled by a coalition of aid organizations that shows an alarming gap between the scale of the refugee crisis  and current levels of assistance.

With expectations that number of displaced will increase to 3.5 million in the coming months, now is the time to rally strong support for vulnerable Syrian refugees.

Where I'd  like to be today: sunny San Diego, enjoying fresh veggies grown by refugee farmers and delicious East African specialties cooked up by Hasno Ali from Ethiopia  
 
Launched by the IRC last March, the El Cajon Farmers' Market provides refugee gardeners and farmers in El Cajon and around San Diego County with an opportunity to sell what they grow. Open every Thursday, it attracts roughly 350 customers per week.

Ethiopian refugee Hasno Ali cooks East African cuisine at her stand in the El Cajon Farmers Market.

The market is part of the IRC’s #NewRoots program to help resettled #refugees across the US.. reconnect with the land and gain access to healthy produce.

Learn more about Hasno Ali and the El Cajon Farmers' Market:

The international community is not doing enough to aid millions of Syrian civilians in harm’s way, says the IRC's Mike Young in Politico.
The international community is not doing enough to aid millions of Syrian civilians in harm’s way, says the IRC's Mike Young. The scale of need dwarfs the supply of aid.

I had a chance to see this wonderful program in action when I visited northern Uganda last month -- congratulations, moms!
 
Young mothers celebrate their graduation from an IRC parenting program last week in Palabek Kal, Uganda. The graduation marked the completion of a 9-part course that teaches parenting skills to young mothers between the ages of 17 and 25.

During two decades of war in Uganda, many young women were separated from their parents or lacked positive parental role models, and the IRC is helping to fill the gap by teaching practical skills, including: interpreting why a child is upset, disciplining without violence, providing a balanced diet, budgeting for household needs, and saving for a child's future. 

For more on this program please visit:
