Inkster, MI (November 8, 2016) — Midwest Recycling announced a donation of more than 60,000 pieces of Winter clothing to Syrian Refugees in Greece through Humans4Humanity.
The majority of the refugee population in Greece are women and children living in places of temporary accommodations (camps), abandoned warehouses in basic tent, or unsheltered in public places. Currently, there is more than 55,000 refugees from different ethnicities, backgrounds, and religions in Greece; 60% of them are women and children.
“It is a priority for our institution to help out families in need regardless of their religion, background, or ethnicity,” sad Midwest Recycling’s CEO, Abe Hachem. “These people have lost a child, a husband, a wife, a relative, a home and a country. This donation will provide at least one piece of Winter Cloth to a refugee in all of Greece.”
Midwest has announced several donations this year, including a $35,000 donation to the American Red Cross, a $4,000 donation to Kids in Distress Services (K.I.D.S), and in ,a collaborative effort with WXYZ and EduCare Student Services, more than 750 backpacks with supplies were donated to students of less fortunate families in Detroit.
“It is the generosity of companies like Midwest that makes our work possible, ” said Neda Kadri, co-founder of Humans4Humanity. “I don’t really know how to describe how much I appreciate their response. Elated, humbled, grateful, blessed, excited and exhausted are all words that come to mind, but not entirely befitting for all these emotions I’m feeling.”
Humans4Humanity is a non-profit organization which seeks to help underserved refugees from third world countries by providing maximal humanitarian aid and assistance to relieve suffering to facilitate a better living standard, and encourage justice and self-determination for the people.
