Soad and Yousra

soad and yousra

Soad (13) and Yousra (12) in Taalabaya, Lebanon on November 6th, 2015.

Soad and Yousra lived in Allepo, Syria and left with their family two-years ago do to bombings in their neighborhood. Their father Serif El Deen (39) was working full time in a cement factory and now finds occasional work on construction projects in Lebanon earning up to $8/day.

We asked Serif El Deen and his wife Amina (42) what their top-three needs are for their six children and he responded with “Just like my other neighbors, we need 1) food, 2) blankets and 3) diesel oil and wood…these are our basic needs”.

Serif El Deen also noted that his son Fadi (19) has “Rheumatism in his blood” which suggests he may require a thorough diagnosis and treatment. When asked about medical care, no one in the family including Fadi has seen a doctor.

The family does not anticipate an opportunity to return to Syria anytime soon, would be interested in seeking asylum in Europe and is uncertain of what is in store for the future.


Hala G.
I am a fitness instructor and studio owner based in NJ. I am a mom to two little girls. Other than fitness, I am passionate about world peace and helping people who have suffered as a result of war due to my own experiences as a child in war torn Beirut.
$4750 Goal

I grew up in Beirut during the civil war in the 80s and know first hand what it feels like to loose one’s home and all belongings as a result of war. It is something that no child or adult can easily overcome. It was 26 years ago, right before Christmas that I lost my childhood home to a bomb with all its memories and sweet smells.   In memory of that, I am dedicating this campaign. I hope you will help me raise enough money to see this family through the winter.

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.
