Spend your vacation differently: Be part of a humanitarian outreach for people in misery. Their situation is dramatic. Syrian refugees depend on people who care to make a difference. What we need is charity in action, practical help, relief of suffering and true empathy for the refugees, who experienced severe loss. Become an ambassador for a humanitarian and generous spirit. Give away your love and experience the blessing of sharing.
