Salah (3) was born in Damascus, Syria as his parents slept in open fields, schools, abandoned buildings – anywhere they could find a calm sky. Now in Lebanon, three years later, the family is unsure if they will ever return to Syria, stay in Lebanon or find a home abroad.

Salah’s father Walid is an experienced house painter and has managed to find work but only generates $120 USD per month, hardly enough to support his family of five. When asked, the family said their top three needs include food, clothes and shelter beyond a tent.

Young Salah said he would like to have clothes and games.


I'm a newborn/family photographer based in Houston, TX and I just got married last year to my favorite Brazilian man. I've traveled quite a bit and worked with children in extreme conditions, including a home for malnourished or ill children in the Philippines. Every story or video of a refugee family or child breaks my heart, and I recognize that it could be my niece or nephew, my family, my friend, and if anyone I loved was in the same situation I hope someone would help them. I have been very blessed in my life and as we are all brothers and sisters on this planet, I want to do my part to help others as others have helped me.
$2000 Goal

Please consider donating, even $5, to this family. Every dollar counts! We’ve all seen the videos and wondered what we could do to help. This is your chance to help a real person, a real family, in a real way.

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.
