How to help Syria 

On the other hand, to help Syria , different International Organizations are coordinating humanitarian aid for this country, including the Mexican Red Cross. Those interested can make a donation to  the International Committee of the Red Cross 

For its part, the Mexican Red Cross has already sent 4 rescue dogs (July, Rex, Orly and Balam) to Turkey to help in search and rescue efforts.


Another organization through which aid can be sent to Syria is UNICEF, which has mobilized its teams to respond and help affected families. They also ask for urgent support to continue their work.
