Our Mission

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

kids6Salaam Cultural Museum (SCM) is a charitable non-profit organization 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. We also collect and distribute humanitarian aid and coordinate medical missions to the region. Our current focus is on aiding the displaced Syrians that have fled the violence in Syria to neighboring countries. Many of them are injured or sick and in desperate need of medical care.

Be sure to visit our BLOG which has current updates about the status of the Syria projects and other projects, photos, and links to articles relevant to our work.

You can help – just click the Paypal button on the right of the screen and contribute to help our projects. Every little bit helps.

  1. This is grate . What are you doing showing that there are many people who still thinking of others,helping,supporting and trying thier best to safe lives . Good bless you all.

  2. Thank you for your untiring efforts and continuous efforts, Rita Zawaideh and Salaam Cultural Museum, to help the Syrian refugees. We also appreciate the blog and projects page, which gives us an on-the-ground look at the refugees’ daily situations, and the difference that aid makes.

  3. I want to send you a check but I don’t want to use Pay Pal – I’ve had a difference of opinion with them on something else. Please send me a postal address to send the check. You are doing exactly what we think should be done – give all the help possible to the ravaged Syrian refugees and the countries they’ve fled to. We’ve written to the Seattle Times editorial staff with a plea to President Obama to focus our national effort on helping the refugees rather than send missiles.
    Thank you,

  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.
