Selva and her three kids outside their tent in the Nea Kavala refugee camp, Greece, November 2016.

Selva’s husband Mustafa fled Syria first due to threats from the Syrian regime. He obtained asylum in Germany and began the process of reunification for Selva and their three children.

After their home in Syria was bombed, Selva fled with the children to Greece where they await their destiny. Family reunification candidates receive no support from the UNHCR after their asylum interview.

Mary Moreno
Hello, my name is Mary. I, like Selva, am a mother of 3 children. My children are grown now, young adults now, but I remember the days when they were young and my husband was many miles away for long periods of time. It was difficult, but we were never living in a refugee camp, having left our home and every possession behind, fleeing war and trying to just survive. I feel very called to help Selva, and others, who are not so different from me, but whose needs are so great.
$4674 Goal

I travelled to Greece in February and again in May of 2016 to volunteer with the refugee crisis. In the photo above, I am holding newborn Michael at the port in Piraeus, Greece. Michael’s mother had just died, and his father was trying to get to Germany with Michael’s 4 brothers and their grandmother. I met many refugees on that trip in February and again in May. Their courage and resilience inspired and humbled me. I cannot forget them now that I am back home. is an excellent way that I have found to directly support a refugee family. All funds donated go directly to the family and have such a huge impact. Please consider making a donation to this campaign. With winter coming on, the need is very great.
