Igor and Josele

Igor and Josele

Igor and Josele are originally from the Congo, having both fled due to the war and violence ever present in their home country. Josele was pregnant when this photo was taken in early January, 2017. She has since given birth to a baby girl.

The family of three is in Istanbul. Though Igor originally held a job at a factory, the management would not pay him consistently (or at all) and he decided to stop going. The family needs assistance with paying for their newborn’s needs and formula, rent, bills and clothing.

When asked what they would do with a large sum of money should they receive it, Igor and Josele said, “We would make sure to take care of the baby’s future because he is our life and our only hope. We already lost our chance at a beautiful life, but we want to take care of her and make sure she has a beautiful life. We want her to be happy.”

$1000 Goal

We are working with our Global Connections classes at Downers Grove South High School (Downers Grove, IL) to raise money for multiple refugee families through Humanwire. This is part of a greater unit of study that includes teaching our students about social responsibility, empathy, and issues affecting people around the world today.  Any and all support you can provide is greatly appreciated!!!

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.


Thinking of traveling? Humanwire can help with recommendations for your itinerary. This could be a great opportunity to meet and connect more closely with the refugee family that will be benefitting from your contribution. For dinner, Humanwire will provide local transportation for everyone. Also, everything included in all prior rewards.
