Karam Foundation - Investing in Syria's future - Lina Sergie Attar

The Podcast by Chicago in Arabic

Technology

When Lina Sergie Attar started Karam Foundation, the goal was to unlock the charity potential of the Arabic community in Chicago and reinforce the culture of giving to help others. This mission was brought into focus in 2011 during the "Arab Spring", especially the Syrian conflict. Now, Karam is an international NGO with offices in the USA and Turkey, helping Syrian refugees in the social and education sectors. We sat with Lina and we talked about the beginnings, the mission and the vision for the future. Visit: www.karamfoundation.org. for more info. Music: Bassel & The Supernaturals
