Meet the Founder
After two decades of being a mom, Nadia broadened her scope to mothers and children in Syria. Even before she met anyone directly affected by the crisis, Nadia engaged with the local US community - and the fire to do something only grew when she traveled to Turkey and met mothers who had no support.
Watch how Nadia engaged her local community in the US to empower Syria's most vulnerable through NuDay.
There was no significant personal experience that triggered Nadia to begin NuDay. No life-altering realization. Instead, Nadia's identity as a woman and a mother led her to understand the harsh realities of Syria's most vulnerable: the women and children who so often are left behind.
Nadia established a small core team from her New Hampshire home - a handful of people from New England and contacts inside Syria - and created NuDay.
NuDay's mission is simple: to empower those affected by the Syrian crisis through dignified aid. Accomplishing this goal is no small feat, and NuDay's impact spans a wide range of projects. From schools for the children left behind to wells for people living without access to clean water; medical support for the hospitals that have seen countless attacks to the local job creation for women via self-sustainable business - NuDay does it all.
Since its founding, NuDay has secured dignified and empowered aid for over 6 million people affected by the Syrian crisis.
