Israa (4) is pictured here in a camp in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon where she’s lived her entire life. Her mother and father, Dalal and Abdallah, fled for Lebanon after a rocket leveled their home in Aleppo, Syria. After seeking refuge at a neighbor’s house, which also became destroyed, they knew their only chance for life was to flee the country in November, 2011.

While in Syria, Abdallah was employed as a construction worker. Now he is unemployed, with no opportunity to provide for his family. Food is the only assistance they receive, $14/month per person.

Abdallah and Dalal would like for their daughter to begin her education. In fact, Israa says she hopes to one day become an engineer.

$2000 Goal

We can’t help everyone. The tragedy is just so huge. But we can help somebody. Israa (4), and her 3 sisters – Zahraa (3), Alaa (2), and Walaa (1).

Since the home town of their parents – Ashrafieh – has been bombed to ruins (go ahead, google photos of Ashrafieh), they’ve been living in a refugee camp in Lebanon. The girls have known no other world than the refugee camp.

Imagine that. She is already 4 years old, and that’s the only place she’s seen.

Israa needs help starting her education. She wants to become an engineer in the future. All girls need clothing and food support. Let’s help them. We can make a difference here, and help these girls grow up to be independent, strong, and well-educated women.



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.
