Khatoun (4) stands near her tent in a refugee camp in Lebanon. Khatoun’s family fled their home in Syria in 2012, when she was just a few months old. They left suddenly in a panic and have since learned that their house was bombed.

Now in Lebanon, neither of Khatoun’s parents are working due to health problems. Khatoun has three siblings, Ibrahim (2), Youssef (1) and Mohammad (7), all of whom require attention and care by their mother.

The family lists winter clothing, food, heater oil and assistance with debt payments as their greatest needs. Additionally, Khatoun has a severe astigmatism and requires regular medication.

$2500 Goal

This is a small effort to help those displaced by civil war in Syria, and to show solidarity between U.S. and Syrian citizens in the campaign for world peace. Humanwire’s model, which funds its operating costs through separate donations,  provides direct support to refugee families and fosters an important cross-cultural relationship between real individuals. We hope you will join us in this endeavor to fulfill basic needs, support humanitarian efforts in the Middle East, and meet wonderful new people.

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.
