GOAL USA would like to thank our guests and sponsors for making the 2013 GOAL USA Benefit Ball a wonderful occasion and a huge success. Over $200,000 was raised for GOAL programs, this included what was raised during a special appeal for our emergency relief efforts in Syria.
GOAL is also one of the few agencies working inside Syria, we are delivering food, blankets, hygiene kits and other non-food items to over 250,000 displaced people per month in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.
We are also launching a bakery program, to provide subsidized bread to vulnerable communities, and we also plan to implement an extensive water and sanitation program. By the start of 2014, GOAL hopes to expand current programs to deliver aid to 500,000 people each month.
You can read more up-to-date information about our programme in Syria on our website here.
