Raman and Alo

WhatsApp Image 2016-10-13 at 2.39.25 PM

Raman graduated from the Institute of Agriculture in Syria though unfortunately he was not able to build his career in this area due to the war. After refusing to join the military Raman fled with his wife Alo and three children from Syria to Greece in January of 2016.

Existence in Greece has proved an unfortunate challenge. Food is scarce and living conditions for the family are unbearable. Raman has diabetes and has been unable to afford any medication since leaving his homeland.

The family is concerned about surviving the upcoming winter in a tent and lack basic food and supplies.

Host
My husband, Dustin, and I have 2 boys Warren, age 10, and Kai age 2. We live in the Texas Hill Country and have been eager to help with Humanwire since hearing about it through my sister, Jessica Hogan. My husband's ancestry is Lebanese and we've always held an affinity for the culture and people. We are shocked and saddened by the atrocities that these people have endured and would like to do what we can to help. We are excited to meet the family and my son, Warren, can't wait to start helping raise some funds!

My husband, Dustin, and I have 2 boys Warren, age 10, and Kai age 2.  We are very eager to help a family in need, and we hope to see them provided with the means to live happily not having to suffer any longer.  Our hope is that others reading will see that these families are like you and I just trying to provide a better life for their children.
