Many of you know that our brother/brother-in-law has served with several different humanitarian organizations helping those impacted by the Syrian war. He has been working in the region for the past 4+ years with time in Syria, Turkey and Lebanon - where he currently works and lives with his wife (also working in humanitarian relief).
I reached out to him to ask a few questions ahead of hosting Syrian violinist and peace activist Mariela Shaker (amazing evening Saturday if you missed it!). The questions with his responses are below (he asks that you read them as non-cynically as possible), and will hopefully shed some helpful light on the situation from his first-person viewpoint and encourage us all to see how we can be involved in helping from back home. If you're wondering how to use your own voice to advocate, check out a few of the resources after the interview questions.
