Serge and his mother originally lived in the west African country of Cameroon. In 2007, Serge’s father left for Turkey to find work and bring the rest of his family to live with him. After seven years of unsuccessful attempts to reunite the family, Serge’s mother, Adele finally made it to Turkey with just Serge. When her husband returned to Cameroon to gather the rest of their children, neither he nor the other children were able to gain visas to return to Turkey. Now Serge’s father is stuck back in Cameroon without work.

Adele was renting part of another woman’s room for the month but her situation is unsustainable and her future outlook is dire. She is being kicked out of the house, and she and Serge have been struggling to obtain enough food to stay nourished. Additionally, Adele has recently been experiencing issues with her eyes and needs to see a doctor.

I was born and raised in the US but live in Switzerland. I’ve been lucky enough to do a fair amount of traveling and believe that in this increasingly interconnected world we all must think and act as global citizens. We are all neighbors on this precious planet of ours as far as I’m concerned!
$500 Goal

Neither of my ‘home’ countries, the United States and Switzerland, are doing nearly enough to help refugees. Following the many awful conflicts and reports of displaced people throughout the world in the news, I’ve often felt both eager and at a loss to do *something* to help those in need. I am only one person and these conflicts are so huge, complicated, and horrible and not something I can directly impact. I am only one person, yet I *can* do something to try to help another individual. I would be grateful if you join my efforts to help support Serge and his mother.

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.
