Oxfam calls for Syrian appeal help

First published in

The Oxfam shop in Helmsley is urging support for its emergency appeal as the Syrian refugee crisis worsens.

Described by Foreign Secretary William Hague as “the greatest humanitarian catastrophe of the twenty-first century so far”, more than 1.3 million refugees are in need of help and the UN predicts the number of refugees could rise to three million by the end of the year.

People wanting to help can donate in the Oxfam shop on Church Street, Helmsley or by phoning 0300 200 1999 or online at oxfam.org.uk.
