In the early 1900s, SOS became the worldwide distress signal, but typically in maritime situations. These days it’s used as a sense of urgent message or appeal for help from anybody in any situation.
That’s what Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Ontario is doing. It’s sending out an urgent appeal for help on behalf of the estimated 12.2 million Syrians in need of humanitarian assistance, the
1 million injured in the fighting, and the 7.6 million internally displaced people.
