Manar (12) has been living in the Al Ziknaf refugee camp in Lebanon since July, 2016.

When her Syrian village Al Hasakeh was attacked, she and her family fled to a neighboring village. As extremists systematically moved from village to village, the family decided that Manar, her brother Anwar (13) and sister Nora (15) would be kept safest by fleeing to Lebanon. This very difficult decision separated the family, leaving the three children to be on their own.

At this time they are not sure they will ever be able to return to Syria and be reunited with their parents. They occasionally earn money harvesting potatoes, and can not afford school.

Their needs are as basic as they are urgent: they require food and clothing, a stove for their tent as well as mattresses, pillows and blankets. Anwar would like to be able to go back to school. A big wish is also to buy a mobile phone, which is essential to stay connected with loved ones back home.

I am an active volunteer at a Head Start program in Colorado Springs and working on finding more opportunities in the Denver metro area. I'm exploring options in the education technology field to merge IT skills with my passion for education and constant learning. I believe every child deserves the opportunity to go to school beginning at pre-K so they are able to live full, rich lives that a quality education can give them.
$1000 Goal

As soon as I saw a post with Manar’s story, I knew I had to act and help this family in any way I can. I hope you are inspired to do the same!

The difficulties faced by all of these families are harsh and many times incomprehensible to most of us. Manar, Anwar, and Nora are alone, in a foreign country living in a tent in a refugee camp, forced there by the ongoing violence in Syria. Your help can aid in getting these children basic needs for survival, the opportunity for them to reconnect with loved ones, and the ability to continue their education. The latter two will help in making their lives seem as ‘normal’ as it can be considering the situation they’re in.

I hope you will take a few moments to consider donating to this campaign for Manar, Anwar, and Nora knowing that 100% of the funds collected will go directly to the family. As you can see in the ‘Rewards’ you will receive ongoing information on the campaign status and activity to ensure those that need the assistance providing are receiving it.

I sincerely appreciate your generosity and know Manar and her siblings will as well!

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.
