UK charity which shares Syrian opposition “aims and objectives” benefits from Alan Kurdi tragedy

from “Fabrication in BBC Panorama ‘Saving Syria’s Children'”

Hand in Hand for Syria, the UK registered charity at the heart of the controversial 2013 BBC Panorama programme Saving Syria’s Children, is receiving all the proceeds from a new fund established in honour of Alan Kurdi, the three year old who drowned along with his mother and brother as his family attempted to reach Greece from Turkey on 2 September 2015.

The Guardian reports that the Aylan Kurdi Fund was set up within 24 hours of the circulation of photographs of the boy’s body. As of 9 September 2015 the fund had received over £50,000 in donations.

According to Saving Syria’s Children, Hand in Hand for Syria “helped set up” the largest refugee camp in Syria – Atmeh on the Turkish border.

The UK Charity Commission’s website states that Hand in Hand for Syria exists for “the advancement of health or saving lives”. Until July 2014 the Facebook banner of Hand in Hand’s co-founder and chairman Faddy Sahloul read;

‘WE WILL BRING ASSAD TO JUSTICE; NO MATTER WHAT LIVES IT TAKES, NO MATTER HOW MUCH CATASTROPHE IT MAKES”.

  1. Does anyone else want further proof that these useful idiots will
    say or hold up anything written for them?
    No Syrian would advocate the destruction of their home.

  2. Seamus Padraig says

    Ho-hum. Another day, another fake ZATO charity. Just like the ‘Syrian Observatory for Human Rights’.
