Abd Al Karim

Abd Al Karim

Abd Al Karim (14) from Syria in front of his family’s tent in Lebanon, November, 2016. His mother Bordah explains how they ended up here: “I was living with my husband and my kids in Al Sabkha, the countryside of AL Rakka when ISIS entered. They imposed strict laws on us, requiring long dresses and demanding women cover our faces with Niqabs. They also prevented us from leaving our house and confiscated our televisions. Food prices soared and then dried up. The thing that scared me the most was when they were looking for young children to join them in fighting so I fled to Lebanon in 2015 with my two young kids and husband.”

Adb Al Karim was studying in school before the war broke out but Bordah explained “He does not attend school now because he works to help us live”. He said he earns $4/day harvesting potatoes. “I’d like to complete my study and have a new clothes.” Abd Al Karim’s sister Maisaa (20) who also works in agriculture instead of completing school said “I’d like to live a decent life and have healthy food”.


SUPPORT NETWORK



Melissa
Host
I was moved to start this campaign after reading more about the Syrian crisis. There are so many innocent families living in fear every day, wondering if today will be the day they are bombed or gassed. Many have been able to flee the country but have been left with nothing. The picture above shows Abd Al Karim, standing in front of his family's tent in Lebanon, after fleeing Syria in 2015. Many of the children, including the family in this campaign, have quit school in order to work and earn $4 per day to feed their family. No one should have to live like this just because of where they were born. Please, consider donating to this family. For just $25 you will get access to a live chat with the family, with a translator provided, and they will be able to tell you first hand how thankful they are for your help. Even if you can't give $25, they would be grateful for even $5, which is more than a day's work for this innocent child. You have an opportunity to make a lasting impact on his family's life. Thank you for your time and consideration. Melissa Herron
