Akhras Family


The Akhras family was living in a small town on the outskirts of Damascus, Syria. In 2012, militants attacked, bombing houses all around them. After moving from house to house, village to village, the family was unable to find safety and fled to Jordan.

In Jordan, Mr. Akhras found work at a chicken restaurant, having had previous experience from Syria. Fortunately, the children attend school in Jordan, but the family’s youngest child, Ahmad, is in need of a liver transplant.

The kids have wonderful dreams for the future, such as Zainab (11) who wants to be an engineer and Mohammad (9) who wants to become a pilot.

At least four quarterly emails will be sent to all contributors with status and progress reports related to activity on the campaign. This may include information about the successful transfer of funds to a hospital, a photo of the recipient after a successful surgery, etc.


Contributors will be provided with a local address to send food, clothes, school supplies and letters of support directly to the family’s door. This is a great way to build one-to-one relationships and potentially provide more needed support down the road. Plus, everything included in the $5 reward.


Attend a live video chat session with the host and refugee. Introduce yourself and time-permitting, spark up a conversation along with others involved in the campaign. A translator will be provided for English when needed. Plus, everything included in the $5 and $15 rewards.


Engage in a 30 minute one-to-one live video chat. An arabic translator will be provided for French or English. Plus, everything included in the $5, $15 and $25 rewards.


Everything in the $45 reward, four times! You can give them away to others or enjoy them all yourself. Each of the four rewards comes with everything offered in the $45 reward and below.


Thinking of traveling? Humanwire can help with recommendations for your itinerary. This could be a great opportunity to meet and connect more closely with the refugee family that will be benefitting from your contribution. For dinner, Humanwire will provide local transportation for everyone. Also, everything included in all prior rewards.
