Simon Cowell Wants To Meet Syrian Refugee Aylan Kurdi's Father, After Donating £10,000 To Help The Crisis

Simon Cowell has said he hopes to meet the father of three-year-old Syrian refugee Aylan Kurdi.


The music mogul has donated £10,000 to the Syrian Refugee Crisis Appeal, which strives to help those fleeing Syria, having been moved by the mass media footage of their plight, including the widely-circulated images of three-year-old Aylan.

According to The Mirror, Simon even hopes to be introduced to Aylan’s father, Abdullah, at the Pride Of Britain awards later in the month.
