Moureba

Moureba

Moureba is pictured here with her daughters and son in Al Marj, Lebanon on October 19, 2015. Moureba lived with her children in Jafar Monsour, Syria and fled in April of 2012: “Bombs were showering our village like rain. We had no chance to make it…we left for Lebanon.” She has not heard from her husband in over two years and is uncertain of his whereabouts.

Top three greatest needs: “Food, blankets and pillows. Fuel oil or wood to keep warm. We must pay for the local mini-market $1500 for food and bread and I would like to go to the doctor for a pain in my breast.”

Beyond sustainability, when asked, Moureba said she wishes she could afford clothes for her kids, furniture for her tent, to be able to put her kids in school (no one in the family has received any type of formal education in their lives), and to find a way to provide her eldest son with a wonderful wedding.Moureba2

I live in Hallowell Maine and make a living by providing housing as a property owner and landlord. I am interested in preventing further human caused climate change and in mitigating its negative effects on the natural world that also lead to human conflict. I'm happiest being in the sun and enjoying this beautiful planet.
$4100 Goal



Hello and thanks for checking out my campaign. I would like to help Moureba and her family be ready for the winter that is almost upon us. My own preparations for winter and history of living in a tent and on a sailboat have really emphasized for me that staying warm is more a question of survival then about comfort. The Lebanese winter is cold and these refugees are not prepared. Please join me in helping to pay for a small heater and some propane bottle deliveries to help keep them warm. I have budgeted $1200 to fuel a small heater for the winter, insulation for their tent, and other materials to help weather proof the structure. $200 should be enough to get warm clothing and shoes for the family. $300 for blankets and bedding and some simple furniture will go a long way toward giving them comfort and hope for a chance of a future. I would like to raise $1500 to help pay for food and the debt that they have incurred buying food. $500 should cover medical exams for the family and will be a start toward treatment if Moureba needs any. It would be great to have a tutor come and work with the children on reading and $200 will help with this and with buying books. They will be much better situated to help themselves in the future if they have education and access to knowledge. Finally, I would like to try to raise $200 to help pay for Moureba’s son’s wedding as this is really important to her and they should have some hope for a future after the misery of losing everything they have in war. This brings us to $4100 and where I set my goal for the campaign. Please help me in raising this money for Moureba and her family by donating through the site. In addition, you may want to start your own campaign and “adopt” your own family. It’s super easy to do and most people are willing and capable of sparing a few dollars to help fight what has become the greatest humanitarian crisis of our generation. Humanwire is in its beginnings. Successfully supporting these first few campaigns can really help get the ball rolling for others who will see a successful model in action. Your contribution goes beyond directly helping Moureba and her family, it shows support for an idea that has the potential to change the lives of thousands of people, and it shows the world that we, and especially those of us that are Americans, are not the greedy war mongering people that so many have mistaken us for, but are kind and compassionate and willing to share in the opportunity that we have. Our response to this crisis can show the world who we really are. Thank you!
