Three months ago, Dustin and Katie Kelm started their trek outside of Savannah, Georgia and are now currently in Bend.

 

They are trying to raise awareness for the more than two million refugees who are along the Syrian border trying to escape the Civil War there.

 

Dustin Kelb says most people have been supportive.

 

"It's been varied.  It's been interesting in the last months as the issue of Syria has surfaced more.  We're trying to raise awareness.  It's not a political issue, it's a people issue."

 

The Kelms decided to make the cross ocuntry trek when they met a 10 year old Syrian boy who was orphaned when his parents were killed in the crossfire in the Syrian civil war.

 

They plan to end their journey next Tuesday (October 8th) when they hope to arrive at the Oregon coast.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
