Pictured above, two of Mu’s three children.

Mu was a professional weightlifter in Iraq and worked as a personal trainer with the U.S. military in Baghdad. One day he was driving with his 18 year old sister when militants forced his car off the road. Mu’s sister was killed in front of him in the confrontation that followed, and he was kidnapped. For three weeks he was tortured, and when he was finally released, he knew he needed to flee his country.

His contacts in the U.S. military helped him flee with his family to Jordan, and after multiple surgeries to repair his abused body, he decided to continue on to the U.S. Now settled in Denver, Colorado, Mu is finally at peace. Due to his disabilities, he cannot work as a weightlifter and trainer, but would like to buy an industrial sewing machine to begin a small business to support his family and build their future.

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.
