Dear Board Members of Karam Foundation, We are industrial design students in Tunghai University, Taiwan. We want to do something to help those for what is currently going on Syria. Due to our geographical location̶ Taiwan̶we are unable to directly access Syria and bring them help. Fortunately, we have found out that the Karam Charity has the same idea and concept as us, and they have enough credibility and influentiality worldwide. We would like to take this opportunity as a way to bring our design̶a way of upcycling lifejackets̶to you.

Our mission


We hope that the Syrian Civil War gets as much attention as the other international incidents. We want to help those̶who are unaware of the news̶understand more of what s going on in Syria, bringing in more support globally.

In 2015, Paris was under attack, and in 2017 London Tube Attack and the Las Vegas Shooting Incident has started a wave of awareness around the world. Instagrammers from all over the world has posted phrases such as #prayforparis, etc., as a way to show their support. But since 2011̶the year the war in Syria has started̶there has been forgotten by the world. We believe that the people of the world deserve the equal human rights, and everyone should be treated the same̶no matter what country they re from.

Through design, we can upcycle lifejackets into products for the commercial industry. Repurposing the use of lifejackets can bring beneďŹ ts to the environment and raise the attention of marketplace.

TURKEY GREECE

2. Through research, we have found out that most of the refugees have ed to Europe, in search of a better shelter. Once Germany has announced that they will open it s doors for refugees, many have taken the dangerous journey of traveling by sea to reach the shores of Greece, also leaving tens of thousands of lifejackets behind. There is a spot on the Island of Lesbos called The Lifejacket Graveyard due to the number of lifejackets that were left behind. More than 150,000 lifejackets were abanoned and therefore, they have created a negative impact on the Greek environment.


11 million Syrian s became refugees which was equal to half of Taiwan s population

We hope to offer jobs to refugees so that they could make a living and earn back their dignity. Those who purchase the products can further understand the issue, and provide support to the refugees.

Through a further understanding, we realized that only a third of the refugee population successfully registered as a refugee in the UNHCR (Source: 3/15/2017 UN Refugee Agency). This means most of the refugee population are unable to receive basic wages. Rather than donating funds, we hope to bring job opportunities, which give them the ability to tend to their basic necessities.

For the people of Taiwan: We realized that those around usĚśTaiwaneseĚśare mostly unaware of what is currently going on in Syria. We are aware that the Taiwanese international news hardly covers any news regarding Syria s crisis. Therefore, we can conclude that Taiwan lacks interest for this issue. We do hope the Taiwanese could become aware of the issue that is going on, and take part in the international crisis.


Our plan

Thank you for reading our proposal. If you think that our goal and mission are similar to yours, or if you agree with our proposal, we have prepared some methods for making the products and the details for carrying out our plans.
