How Athletes Can Feed Syrian Refugees

There is a humanitarian emergency ongoing in the Middle East with refugees fleeing war-torn Syria. While it might seem a world away and hard to help, there is actually something you can do.

Earlier I reported how the free app Charity Miles is raising funds for the UN World Food Programme (WFP), the largest hunger fighting agency. WFP works in around 70 countries and is providing food aid for Syrian war victims.

The Charity Miles app tracks your walking, running and biking distances. For every mile a donation is made to WFP, or any charity of your choice. The Charity Miles for WFP are going toward their school meals programs. WFP has just started school feeding for Syrian refugee children in Jordan.

By walking, running and raising Charity Miles for WFP you can help increase the funding amounts for school meals. It’s an easy way to get involved in the relief effort no matter where you are in the world.

You can get started at Charitymiles.org
