Doa and Yusuf

doa and yusuf

Doa (6) and her brother Yusuf (10) are part of a large family of Syrians once living a progressive and productive life in Aleppo, Syria when everything became disrupted by war.

Their father Ahmet owned and operated an HVAC factory but lost all of his assets to the war, including the destruction and pillaging of his factory equipment.

After a section of the family’s house was damaged in an aircraft bombardment, they realized they could not stay any longer.

Now Ahmet is a general laborer but suffered an injury that left him with a plate, screws and paralysis in his right arm. He said he would like to return to his business and recover from the psychological difficulty of adjusting to an unsustainable wage, unable to support his family.

Yusuf who loves music is the only one the family can afford to send to school.


Sandy Ray
$3000 Goal

I have been watching the heart-wrenching situation unfolding in Syria and have felt so sad and helpless as wonder how I could help someone who is so far away.

I heard about this site on the Colorado Public Radio and decided to check it out. This is a crowdfunding site, put together by a some thoughtful, tech-savvy, and creative people from Boulder who designed it specifically to connect donations from people, like you and I, to folks who have been forced to flee their homes anywhere in the world.

This site itself takes no money. All the money you might donate goes directly to helping the family mentioned in this campaign. While this small amount of money can not solve the larger problem, it can significantly help ease the suffering of someone in great need and is a way to give help directly.

I hope you’ll consider making a donation of any size. It doesn’t have to be much, but if we pool our money, we can make a signficant difference today. Then check out this site ( and see if you might want to do a campaign too- it was very easy and straight forward.

Thank you! Sandy

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.
