As the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo continues to grow, many people are looking for ways to help.
The Chicago Red Eye put together a collection of charities to donate to.
Here's an excerpt of the list:
Donate to the White Helmets Hero Fund, a grassroots search-and-rescue force in Syria and specifically Aleppo. The group of 2,900 civilians have been in action since 2013 and 100 percent of the donations go directly to volunteers who work to rescue civilians caught in the crosshairs of the civil war.
Support the International Rescue Committee. The IRC has been working in Syria since 2012 and assisted over 1.4 million people in 2015 alone, according to their website. Currently, the organization is calling on President-elect Trump and President Obama to lend support and demand accountability for the human rights violations occurring every day in the war-torn country. The organization has already dispatched 4,000 volunteers to Idleb province near eastern Aleppo.
Donate to Doctors Without Borders. Aleppo has no functioning hospitals, making the work of this global, nonpartisan medical relief organization that much more important. Volunteers are active on the ground across Syria providing equipment, supplies and medical attention.
In addition to Doctors Without Borders, the Syrian American Medical Society has been operating in Syria since 2011 and currently maintains 100 medical facilities within the country. The organization provides equipment and mobile clinics throughout the country, as well as physical rehabilitation for those wounded.
Support Save the Children, an organization that works with internally displaced and refugee children affected by the Syrian conflict. Since the start of the civil war, Save the Children and its partners have helped over 1 million children and families throughout Syria, only a fraction of the 7.5 million children affected by the war. Save the Children has also established camps and host communities for Syrian refugees in neighboring countries such as Egypt, Iraq and Jordan.
Donate to Hand in Hand for Syria, an organization that works alongside the U.N. to provide aid to Syrians who are directly in the line of danger. In the wake of volunteers living in eastern Aleppo being forced to abandon their work during the pro-government siege earlier this week, the organization has created an emergency appeal for the approximately 100,000 citizens attempting to flee the city.
You can see the full list on the RedEye's website. Time and Harpers Bazaar also have similar guides, while Global Citizen and Public Radio International have guides of charities that aid Syrian refugees.
