Alaa, Marah, Amer and Qamar


Sisters Alaa (12), Marah (11) and Qamar (1) stand outside their temporary shelter in Lebanon. They fled their home in the countryside of Damascus with their brother Amer (8) and parents after a shell fell on their home due to the intense fighting. Thankfully the family was not injured, but the children are still traumatized. After staying with relatives and moving around Syria for just over a year, they traveled to Lebanon searching for a better, more stable life.

Now in Lebanon, their mother has been unable to find work and their father cannot work due to a spinal issue. Without employment the family fears falling further into debt. Alaa, Marah and Amer all attend school, but are behind in their studies due to the war.

$1500 Goal

These girls’ family is struggling to pay off existing debt while also seeking medical treatment for their father and their brother. With employment hard to find for their mother, I’m organizing this campaign to help them out.

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.
