Syrian relief advocate speaks at Springfield church

Hampden County

Christ Church Cathedral congregants in Springfield heard from a Syrian woman known for her humanitarian work in the war-torn Middle East country.

Nadia Alawa is founder and president of the Syrian relief organization called Nu Day Syria.

Prior to speaking at the Episcopal church Sunday, she told 22News how the civil war and the resulting turmoil are affecting those caught in the crossfire. “We are watching children suffering, getting killed, not being able to go to school, and mothers watching the children go through all the suffering.”

Nadia Alawa now lives in New Hampshire, where she holds programs helping the Syrian people with humanitarian and medical supplies.
