U.S. Collegiates Volunteer on Syrian/Jordan Border

An International Relations student at California State University Long Beach with an emphasis in the Middle East,  the 20-year-old student who has already demonstrated humanitarian work in Sudan and at Palestinian orphanage in Beit Sahour, is presently on the Syrian/Jordanian border on a   humanitarian trip to help Syrian refugees fleeing the bloodshed (regardless of their affiliation) according to a website, Humanitarian on a Mission.

Working on the border with the student, Jordan Hattar, is "Dina Alhayek is a Jordanian-American human rights activist...Dina is passionate about human rights, development, and conflict resolution," the website notes.

The student's message, "... in order to make a positive difference in this world you don’t need a specific skill, just a heart. Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you'll find your treasure."
