The Syrian American Women's Charitable Association, SAWA, is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to helping similar charitable organizations in Syria.

SAWA's goal is to address the humanitarian needs of the disadvantaged, the elderly, and the sick in all parts of Syria, without regard for political, racial, or denominational considerations. SAWA promotes public awareness of these needs, solicits public support and contributions, and sponsors fund-raising events. SAWA channels this assistance directly to registered, non-governmental welfare organizations in Syria. SAWA is an independent, non-partisan and non-sectarian organization, committed to assist the poor, and the disadvantaged. It is equally committed to promote humanitarian cooperation between the people of the Syrian Arab Republic and the United States of America.

Since 1995, SAWA has donated over a million dollars to various worthy causes in Syria and in the United States. For a brief disclosure of the recipients of our donations, please check our donation page.
