Shirin and Cihan


Shirin (4) and Cihan (1) in Istanbul. Their parents fled Syria in 2012. The kids’ mother Neyruz explains: “We lived in Aleppo for two years under bombs and air raids. There were no supplies, not even bread available.”

After originally fleeing to Afrin, the family continued on to Turkey where they stayed in Neyruz family’s living room. The children’s life is slowly improving thanks to the occupation of their father Abdulhanan who works in a printing shop earning $320 a month.

Abdulhanan does not see well and would benefit from an eye exam and glasses. The children are in need of diapers, milk, clothes and food. After the family pays their rent, it is hard to afford anything else.

$1000 Goal

I live in Denver, Colorado with my husband, Lynn, and my 1 1/2 year old daughter, Avery. I am a child welfare attorney who works hard to keep kids safe every day but have felt helpless when reading about the atrocities facing the Syrian children and families. We are so fortunate to live in a safe community with the comforts of a home, food, and jobs. I take for granted the ways that my basic needs are met and that my daughter is thriving. Please join me in helping to provide some of the most basic necessities to this family, and maybe a bit of hope along the 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.
