ORC distributes backpacks & aid to refugee children and families from war torn countries like Syria, Iraq & Afghanistan to ease their journey to asylum.
Operation Refugee Child (ORC) distributes backpacks filled with basic necessities to bring comfort, health, safety and warmth to refugee children and families who have left everything behind. In October 2015, an American mother of Middle-Eastern descent felt compelled to do something about the refugee crisis; they decided to bring refugee children backpacks full of supplies that would provide comfort, safety, health and warmth for the journey to asylum. They planned to raise money to distribute 300 backpacks, but were filled with gratitude when thousands of people all over the world pledged funds to help refugee children. Thanks to their support and the work of our volunteers, Operation Refugee Child will distribute 10,000 backpacks this year. We wish refugee families good luck and hope our backpacks help their journey. For questions or comments please contact OperationRefugeeChild@gmail.com.
