Mohammad and Lara

Mohammad and Lara fled from Syria to Lebanon with their parents and two siblings in early 2016. Forced from their home by militants, their mother Mariam explains:

“I was living in my town Al Tabqa in the province of Al Raqqa with my husband and four children when ISIS attacked the city in 2014 and imposed its laws by force of arms. They were looking for young children to teach them to take up arms and fight in exchange for money and took young girls, specifically the 14 year olds, in order to marry them regardless of their will…I was so afraid for my kids so we fled to the countryside even as the city was under heavy bombardment.”

When asked about their current needs, the family noted food, winter clothing, a heater with diesel oil, blankets and mattresses and an opportunity for education for the kids.

$3000 Goal

I have felt so helpless at what to do to help those who have lost everything because of the war in Syria.  Humanwire has made it possible to connect to real people and give them basic needs that they are in dire need of.  Please consider donating to this family.

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.
