The Syria Fund

Maker - Lexi & Demetri Shereshewsky

The Syria Fund

Maker Story

Filling the gap

Since the Syrian Civil war started, Jordan has received some of the largest numbers of refugees. But because there isn’t enough international aid, the majority of them live outside UN-organized camps.

The Syria Fund is a group of volunteers dedicated to helping these underserved refugees. One of their major initiatives is to educate the children, many of whom have missed years of school. The Fund builds classrooms, employs teachers, and provides resources dedicated to getting the Syrian youth in Jordan back on track.

Founders Lexi Shereshewsky and Demetri Blaisdell lived in Damascus, Syria prior to the crisis. After moving back to the U.S. and seeing the country they loved fall into turmoil, they decided to help. They focused their efforts on this unmet need, giving children displaced by war the chance to integrate into Jordan and the opportunity for future success.
