Fund a Container
You can fund your own container of humanitarian aid to Syria.
Since 2016, MFA has been sending relief containers to Syria to help alleviate suffering.
To date, over $185 million in emergency aid has been shipped.
With the decade-long war continuing to displace millions of people, more and more aid is needed. To respond, MFA has created a unique Fund A Container program, giving individuals and groups a way to participate in sending relief containers to those in need in Syria.
For just $6,500, you can send a container filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars of food, clothing, medicines, medical supplies, and medical equipment.

Partnering with Syrian NGOs to deliver the right aid to the right place.
MFA and its partners get the right aid to the right place. Now that MFA has local offices on the ground, we can work even more closely with our trusted NGO partners in Syria to identify the precise relief needed, and then determine how to best to fill the demand. We coordinate shipments to each location to ensure that the relief arrives intact to our intended recipients.
Harnessing MFA's network to collect relief supplies.
MFA and its partners have developed a broad network of organizations and supporters that donate relief supplies for the containers we ship. Our network is comprised of Christians, Jews, Muslims and donors that range from well-established relief organizations to local volunteer groups with access to needed supplies.
These life-saving shipments include food, clothing, medicines, medical supplies and equipment. We’ve even sent ambulances, CT Scanners and MRI machines. Over the past year and a half, we’ve also sent massive amounts of PPE and other emergency supplies to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in overcrowded displacement camps.

Note: The actual cost of shipping a particular container can vary, depending on the source and location of the donated supplies, the types of supplies, the points of embarkation and destination of the shipment, the cost of inland shipping, the ocean freight expenses, repacking fees, warehousing and drayage charges, customs, duties, administrative fees paid to third parties, the operating expense of MFA’s humanitarian relief efforts and a variety of additional factors. If, due to the variability of these costs and expenses, the per container charge is revised, MFA will notify you prior to accepting payment. The per container charge will not be modified once your payment has been accepted. If the funds received exceed actual shipping costs, excess funds will be used solely to fund the operational expenses of MFA’s humanitarian relief efforts.
