Diana Delbecchi ’10 (Human Development, Psychology) told Fox 11 that Syrians are fleeing the war in their country in search for a better life. Delbecchi volunteered at Ritsona, where she says that funding for camps is decreasing, causing big organizations to pull out. Last year, Delbecchi raised $2,000 for the refugee program. UW-Green Bay Prof. David Coury (Humanities & Global Studies) commented: “Syria is almost completely devastated, and these refugees, if they return, they have nothing but rubble to return to.” Delbecchi wants to remind people that it is important to bear those affected by decisions and solutions in mind. Prof. Coury adds: “The solution will have to come collectively. It’s not just going to be the U.S., it’s not going to be Europe, and certainly Russia, and Iran aren’t going to be able to solve it.” WTAQ-WLUK picked up the story.
