From one form of rape to the other. Just help them leave the country and get a proper start abroad. It does not make sense to marry raped women as a form of help. The news is that the regime is using Alawite gangs, the Shabiha, to rape; this will definitely exacerbate sectarian tensions. 

"KHIRBET AL-JOUS, Syria — A group of men have committed themselves to an unlikely way of challenging the violence that has swept Syria in recent months, pledging to marry women they have never met.
One involves four sisters, from the nearby town of Sumeriya, who were allegedly raped by pro-government Shabiha militiamen."
