Banan (36) pictured with her kids in Auxipoli, Greece, November 2016.
Banan’s husband left Aleppo first after daily bombings prevented the family from finding sustenance. Having made it to Germany where he obtained asylum, he’s helped the rest of his family escape to Greece where they await the world to determine their destiny. Banan has a meeting with the UNHCR in March, 2017 to discuss reunification in Germany. The family has been living in the camp for the past eight months and still has four months before their asylum interview. Despite being a vulnerable case, the family has no support from any NGO’s.
In addition to food and adequate shelter, Banan listed medical support for her 5-year-old son who is diabetic.

The location is rural, and the family has been struggling to get supplies and groceries. Banan’s son has a middle ear infection, and for the past week Banan has been in the hospital with him. The family’s current top need is food.
