NASIMCO Supports Syrian Refugees
NASIMCO answered the call for emergency assistance for Syrian refugees by partnering with UNHCR. A partnership that has provided opportunities to help alleviate the plight of the Syrian Refugees.

NASIMCO, within its area of operation, encourages and promotes communities to help alleviate human suffering throughout the world.

A blurb from the partnership page of UNHCR:

NASIMCO's support of UNHCR means that more displaced people, many of whom have travelled great distances to reach safety, will receive emergency assistance, shelter, medicine and help with urgent medical needs.
