BackUnity Convoy – London to Syria Crowdfunding

Unity Convoy – London to Syria

A coalition of charities have created a campaign called ‘Unity Convoy’ which plans to drive 100 much needed Ambulances by road through Europe from London to the Bulgarian border. These will then be loaded into containers and taken into Syria.
Asim Ilyas, from LBS’ IT dept is not only fundraising to support this initiative but will also be driving an ambulance himself as part of a convoy. Commenting on why he decided to participate, Asim said: “I am one of those people that doesn’t usually like giving to charity because I don’t trust that ALL of my donations will reach those in need. That’s why I decided to do it myself”.
“I would like to invite the LBS community to support me in this initiative by making a donation. Any amount you can give will have a massive impact on people that are helpless and in great need of emergency medical care”.
