Maher and Goli

“We left Aleppo because the house was bombed,” says Maher. He and his wife, Goli, and two of their three children have been living in a refugee camp in Greece since early 2016.

The camp has limited resources. They receive food from the Greek military and have access to medical care from the Red Cross. Goli has problems with dizziness and her hearing, and Hepatitis A is a rampant problem in the camps that the family is concerned about.

They are hoping to be reunited soon with their third son in Germany whom they have not seen in over a year.  He is only 12 years old.  Although their reunification application was approved in May 2017, Germany just announced a monthly quota on processing reunification transfers from Greece, and it is unknown how many more months they will have to wait in Greece.  The family needs to pay several more months of rent.

Si vis amari, ama.
We're a creative team based between New York and Melbourne, and like everyone daunted by the state of the world, none of us know where to start. With this in mind, we are making a start here, and hoping we can give some hope to this family by the end of the year. We very much appreciate your help.

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.
