Syria aid collection points set up in Tower Hamlets

Collection points are being set up in Tower Hamlets this weekend as part of a nationwide appeal to help relieve the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

The Big Aid Drop for Syria project is asking people to donate goods such as medical equipment, school materials, blankets and nappies which will be delivered to families stranded in Syria.

Drop off points are being set up at St Paul’s Church in St Stephen’s Road, Bow, and in Greenfield Road, Whitechapel.

Donations will also be made in other cities across the UK.

National organiser Iman Mujahed said: “We know that the British public want to do more to help ease the suffering of people in Syria especially after seeing the terrible attacks in Damascus last week.
