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.

5/23/17 UPDATE – Banan and family had their interview with the UNHCR and have since been transferred to housing. 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.

I have spent three months this past year volunteering with the refugees in Greece. I live in France where I created an association "Aide et Espoir aux Réfugiés-Help and Hope". In September I went to meet a fellow volunteer, Kayra, in northern Greece and she took me to meet some of the the families she is helping. (The above photo is of me (on the left) and Kayra who is on the ground looking after Banan's family).
$5104 Goal

The situation in the camps is terrible, winter is very cold and wet in northern Greece and there is no heating for the refugees. It is no place for a woman on her own, trying to care for ten children, six of her own and four of a woman who was killed in Syria. One of the children needs medical care for diabetes and another has serious scars from a bomb which wounded him and his father. Two friends, Kayra and Mohamed are the only help this family has had up to now, My association has been sending some money, but it is not enough,other funds are desperately needed to give them a home and food for the winter. This is why they have been accepted on this Humanwire program. Please help me to help them.
