ORGANIZATION: CIVIC WORKS

In recent years, Syria’s rising temperatures and foreign water restrictions have enormously diminished the water levels of the Euphrates River-the country’s most significant source of water for centuries. This has come to a head in a recent water contamination crisis in Jarablus, where almost 500 people were poisoned by contaminated water in the last weeks, as many as 150 patients in one day, and the area is no longer being provided with pumped water.

The residents are organizing to raise funds for a water filtration system, and need help raising funds. We have contacts on the ground there who will validate the use of the system and prove the use of funds for the purchase of a SkyHydrant durable water filter (or possibly similar system if we research others).

Mission Statement

We created civ.works as a platform for all of us to work together to overcome the corrupting influence of money in politics. Together we can address bad policy, legislation and to hold all of our elected officials accountable. For democracy to work -our government must represent "We the People". civ.works: Together. We can.

Description

civ.works is a privacy protected social platform built for meaningful civic action.

The concept of civ.works is to finally provide a societal machine to stand up against something created nearly 50 years ago -and begin the process of empowering citizens again. We are building a platform together -against an incredibly mature and well-funded machine. Your volunteer efforts will be helping us collectively build something powerful and important.
