Gulf countries: open your doors to Syrian refugees!

To all leaders of the Arab Gulf countries:

As concerned citizens from across the region, we urge you to open your doors to Syrian refugees. Neighboring countries have reached breaking point and need your support to relocate and save refugees fleeing the war.

In the past few weeks, seven Syrian refugees died from cold in Lebanon and more are expected to follow. This is the heartbreaking reality for innocent Syrians who have nothing left but hope -- but if we act fast, we can help protect them.

From Turkey to Sweden to Australia, governments around the world have welcomed Syrian refugees. But until this day, wealthy Gulf countries who have the money and space have yet to open their doors to desperate Arabs who need it most. If thousands of us pressure them to welcome Syrian refugees in their nations, we can get them to act.

The situation is as dire as it gets -- now more than ever Syrian refugees need us. Sign the urgent appeal to Gulf countries to host Syrian refugees, and share this with everyone. When we get to 20,000 signatures, Avaaz will deliver our call directly at a Syria meeting happening in weeks.
