200,000 backpacks.

That’s a idea of Project Backpack, orderly by several non-profit and village organizations in Metro Vancouver.

The plan is to yield propagandize reserve for children on a Downtown East Side, as good as new Syrian Refugees entrance to Vancouver who are about to start school.

Khalil Jessa with one group, Child Aid International, says they’re looking to lift $72,000 quickly, to yield a new backpacks earlier rather than later.

“Our idea is to lift that money, obviously, as quick as we can. We hopefully wish to lift it all in a subsequent 3 months. We can start picking a placement day once we’re means to get all those backpacks.”

Jessa says so distant 100 backpacks have been collected, and a open can present money, propagandize reserve and filled backpacks to a project.

He says many other organizations are involved, including a Syrian Canadian Council, Saigon Vancouver Foundation, and Vancouver East MP Jenny Kwan.

Anyone wanting to get concerned to present to Project Backpack can do so at their website.
