Sabah and Ali’s mother Noura explains why the family left their home country of Syria: “We were living in a town called Darya in the countryside of Damascus where the regime army and free army clashed by guns, aircraft and barrel bombs. We felt so scared because militants were taking women and girls to arrest or assault them. So we fled to another area called New Zahira where we had a house, but the area was a strategic military point for clashing and became more worse. My husband traveled to Germany and stayed about five months but returned to Lebanon. My kids and I traveled to stay with him here.”
We are working with our Global Connections classes at Downers Grove South High School to raise money for multiple refugee families through Humanwire. This is part of a greater unit of study that includes teaching our students about social responsibility, empathy, and issues affecting people around the world today. Any and all support you can provide is greatly appreciated!!!
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.
$45 SUGGESTED DONATION
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.

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