In 2013, Mona (right) was living with her husband in Syria. They lived in the countryside of Homs but their village was bombed and their home was destroyed. They first fled to a neighbor and moved on to several areas searching for a safe place to live, but each time there was more bombing forcing them on. They finally decided to flee to Lebanon. Mona’s husband had worked selling fruits and vegetables back in Syria and currently has a small table to sell goods. He suffers from olisthesis and would like medical attention for his back. Her husband’s mother Khouloud (left) also lives with them and has suffered from a stroke. Eventually they would love to return to Syria and rebuild their home. In the meantime, they are doing the best they can despite these health obstacles and lack of substantial income. They are hoping for medical treatment but first need help with basic needs, including such clothing, mattresses and blankets.
Please donate to to this urgent cause. This family has medical issues that need immediate attention and basic needs like food, heat, mattresses, clothes.
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.

No rewards for me thank you (or maybe I would like rewards), I just want to make a donation for a certain amount to Mona and Khouloud.
