Calling All Humanitarians!

Zaman International requests your help welcoming to America Syrian refugees who have suffered the pain of war and displacement. We are working quickly to produce and distribute Zaman's Signature Essential Needs Boxes with everything a family requires to get settled during the first month of their new life here. These boxes provide marginalized families with more than material necessities: they bring relief, love, and hope, and serve as a marvelous introduction to the generosity of their new American friends and neighbors.

1). Sponsor one or more Essential Needs Boxes. Shop for the items in each box (please do not omit or add anything) and drop them off at the Zaman International Hope for      Humanity Center (26091 Trowbridge St., Inkster, MI 48141).
 
2). Become an Essential Needs Box sponsor by making an online monetary donation to cover the cost of one or more boxes. Select Essential Boxes for the donation                  purpose.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email gzain@zamaninternational.org or by calling (313) 551-3994.

Thank you. You are making a difference in the lives of those who need it most!
