Ali Ibrahim


Ali Ibrahim (4 months) in his mother’s arms in a refugee camp in Lebanon.

“The main reason that led us to flee our home is the lack of food and means of living. We were living in a siege between the regime and the Free Army in our village in Aleppo. We couldn’t go outside, starvation was everywhere and people started killing each other just to get a bag of bread. One night my husband and his brothers brought a bus and he ‘told us hurry up, we are leaving to Lebanon tonight’. We came to Lebanon and we settled in a camp in West Bekaa just like other families.”

Now the family is especially concerned about Ali and their inability to afford milk for him.

When I saw Ali’s picture, I couldn’t look away. I have been thinking about all the refugee children and feeling helpless, like I can do nothing. When I saw his photo on this site, I thought, that is how I can help. I will help this little boy, and i hope I can find others who are so moved to help him too.

As a parent, I have been so blessed to be able to provide for my son, and have never had to worry about his next meal or his ability to grow into a healthy adult, and being a mom isn’t easy, even in the best of circumstances. Let’s help this little boy and his family get some stability and some of the many blessings we have all had.

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.

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.
