Between July 1 and December 31, half of our proceeds from Patreon will fund the community radio project.
Refuge Worldwide is putting half of the proceeds accrued through our Patreon towards supporting the community station Radio Zaatari.
The Jordan-based project broadcasts on 97.3FM and is run alongside Acting for Change International, a humanitarian organization created by a Syrian who relocated to Jordan in 2011. Situated roughly two kilometers from Zaatari Refugee Camp near the border of Syria and Jordan, the population of Zaatari Village has more than doubled since the start of the Syrian Civil War in 2011. It’s estimated that over 15,000 Syrian refugees now live in Zaatari Village. Radio Zaatari aims to help children living in the camp broadcast music, poetry, short dramas that investigate prevalent health issues among the refugee population, and artistic expressions from their homeland.
To help support Radio Zaatari’s ongoing operations, you can subscribe to our Patreon. We’ll be announcing further collaborations with the platform in the coming months—stay tuned.
