Shireen and Family

Shireen and Family

Shireen stands with her children outside their tent in Iraq. They are Yazidi, and were forced to flee their home in 2014 when Daesh took over their village. The family has been living in a refugee camp near the border with Syria ever since.

Shireen’s husband was killed when Daesh first attacked in 2013. Though they used to live in a comfortable house in a peaceful neighborhood where all of the children attended school, Shireen must now rely on asking others for help while stuck in a cloth tent. Three of her children attend school while the other four remain without adequate resources.

Shireen mostly wants to send her other four children to school, but is focused on day-to-day basic needs, including food, clothing and adequate shelter.

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.
