The hands of one of Badriya’s children after rummaging through garbage all day.

The four kids fled with their mother from Syria in November of 2016 after witnessing their father’s death in an air strike. The family’s home was in central Aleppo and they lost everything in their journey to Turkey.

Since arriving a few months ago, Badriya’s children, between the ages of 5 and 10, have been out on the street daily to sort through  garbage and then sell their finds. This family is barely making it; they receive no assistance from the UNHCR or other NGOs and have fallen through the cracks of one of the most tragic, ongoing wars of our time.

The family said they need just $200 a month to make rent, buy food and purchase clothing.

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.
