Abed – HUMANWIRE

Abed

Jamal Darwish

Abed (8) lives in Lebanon with his father, mother and two brothers. When he grows up, he said he wants to be a teacher and own a taxi, a horse and a palace.

Abed’s father, Jamal, worked in Lebanon before the war, and when the war started, quickly moved his family to the country. Unfortunately over the last few years Jamal began to suffer from sclerosis in his brain and is now unable to walk.

The family is in need of medicine for Jamal, food, a refrigerator and to get Abed and his siblings into school in light of a better future.


SUPPORT NETWORK



Miriam Hiser
Host
I am simply someone who can no longer sit by and watch the humanitarian crisis created by the Syrian war without taking action. I am blessed with a safe place to live, food, a good job and the love, comfort and support of family and friends. I would like to use that network of family and friends to provide for Abed and his family. Please help me.
$3000 Goal



When I saw the picture of Omran Daqneesh’s, the five year old Syrian boy injured in an airstrike on August 18 in Aleppo, sitting dazedly in an ambulance and wiping the blood from his head, something broke inside me. And I realized I could sit and continue to let my heart break watching him or I could do something.

I chose to do something and I hope you will join me. Andrew Baron, who founded Humanwire, grew up next door to me in East Dallas. He’s created a unique way for us to provide help directly to those suffering by sponsoring an individual or a family.
