Rania Alabbasi & Her Family

Family Seized by the Government & Still Missing

In 2013, Syrian government agents came to the home of Rania Alabbasi, a successful dentist and mother of six, and took her and her family away. No reason was given, and none of them has been heard from since. Write a short letter to the President of Syria, urging the immediate and unconditional release of Rania's children. Rania herself must be released or charged and given a fair trial. After you've written that letter, please also take a moment to write a short solidarity letter or postcard to Rania and her family, letting them know that you are taking action for his human rights. We will use these messages to put more pressure on the Syrian authorities to disclose the location of the family. All the information you'll need can be found in the case sheet and sample letter below.
