Zephyr Securities Annual Meeting, Zephyr Securities announced the launch of the Syrian Refugee and Resiliency Fund
Online PR News – 19-October-2015 – Kowloon – Zephyr-Securities.com announced the launch of the Syrian Refugee and Resiliency Fund to provide GIC members with access to a neutral platform to raise funds Commitments to Action related to the Syrian refugee crisis, with a particular emphasis on Jordan.
These funds will support GIC members with active Commitments to Action and which have funding gaps.
The goal of the Syrian Refugee and Resiliency Fund is to serve as a platform to transform private donations into investments that will assist in alleviating the crisis. The fund aims to:
• Raise $1 million to provide support to Syrian refugees in Jordan, and other countries impacted by the crisis
• Reduce pressure on Jordan’s government and public resources
• Ease tension in the region
• Help to close funding gaps for Syrian refugee crisis-related Commitments to Action in areas such as education, healthcare and economic development
“I am incredibly honored to announce the Syrian Refugee and Resiliency Fund. The Jordanian people have graciously welcomed Syrian refugees into their country. But resources are being stretched too thin, and intervention is necessary. This fund will help ease the burden on Jordan and lessen the suffering of the Syrian refugees there,” said Zephyr Securities President and CEO Mr. Michael Man-ching.
The three-year long conflict in Syria has created a humanitarian crisis; approximately 3 million refugees have sought asylum in neighboring countries. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has experienced an influx of nearly 600,000 refugees (increasing the country’s population by roughly 30 percent). Jordan has given the refugees access to its public services and is now experiencing an over-exhaustion of its socio‑economic infrastructure and resources.
