Students helping refugees

Some Clarence Fulton Secondary students are hosting a fundraiser Sunday to help get Syrian kids back to class

Vernon students are working to help get Syrian kids back to class.

Some Clarence Fulton Secondary students are hosting a fundraiser Sunday, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Schubert Centre. Local youth will be sharing their musical talents at the fundraising concert – minimum $5 donation.

“Our social studies class is hosting a fundraiser for the kids in Syria who were forced out of their homes due to the gas bombing,” said student Ryan Shaw.

“Millions of kids have been forced into refugee camps since the bombing because they have no where else to go, and the majority of those innocent lives have been neglected from not just their education but from their right to live in peace.

“So we feel as Canadians that we should do something about it and help them the best we can in order for them to have a better life than what they are having now.”

The community is urged to take the time  to come support the cause to help as many kids as possible and give them the education and clean water needed to thrive.
