Island aid helps Syrian refugees

Fri, 26 Sep 2014

Syrian refugees in Jordan have been helped by people on the Isle of Man.

Peel Elim Community Church collected two 20 kilo boxes full of blankets and clothing to send to those people displaced by the conflict in Syria.

The Isle of Man Post Office agreed to transport the boxes for free - sending them to Sweden where they were then forwarded to Jordan.

There are believed to be over 600,000 refugees in Jordan with 80 per cent of them living in urban areas in the north.
