Charlotte Students Lead Syrian Relief Efforts

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Students involved in the Prodigal Son Foundation afterschool program are working to provide assistance with relief efforts in Syrian refugee camps.

In partnership with I Dream in Colors, students from Nathaniel Alexander designed the campaign to provide financial support with food, shelter, medicine, and educational access for refugees from Syria.
