Our Mission


Salaam Cultural Museum (SCM) is engaged in humanitarian and educational activities. Our mission is to provide humanitarian aid to people affected by conflict and natural disaster within the MENA region, and to bring cultures and people together to build bridges of understanding

Salaam Cultural Museum (SCM) is a charitable non-profit organization originally formed in February 1996 to gather and publish information on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and to promote understanding of the people, cultures, languages, religions, and lands of this region. For the last several years we have been collecting and distributing humanitarian aid and coordinating medical missions to the region.

Our current focus is on aiding the displaced Syrians that have fled the violence in Syria to neighboring countries. Be sure to visit our BLOG which includes current updates about the status of our various projects, photos, and links to articles relevant to our work.

  5. Hello
    I would like to begin collecting supplies of warm clothing, blankets and other needed items for the Syrian host centers and camps. The issue for me, located in New Jersey, is getting items there. I am wondering if you know of other organizations in the New York/New Jersey area that are making regular shipments to the region? If so, I would greatly appreciate this information.
    Thank you for all your work.
