Donations Skyrocket For Syrian Charity

Deah Barakat, a 23-year-old Syrian-American dental student, was recently murdered with his wife and sister in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He had been fundraising for the Syrian-American Medical Society since summer of 2014. He’d only raised $15,000, but the tragedy caused support for his cause to skyrocket. Donations now exceed $400,000.
