Suha and Waseem

Suha-and-Waseem-600x338

Suha (17) and her brother Waseem (13) pictured in their shelter in Lebanon, February, 2017. Their mother Shadia: “We were living in Lattakia, Syria when the revolution broke out. My husband’s brother was living in the city and was killed by a missile as he was walking.  Airplanes hit our neighborhood frequently at the time, too. We were afraid we would meet the same fate as my brother-in-law if we stayed any longer so we decided to flee.”

After staying two months at a refugee camp inside the border of Turkey, they continued on to Lebanon in hopes of finding a better situation. The family did find  a place to stay in a basement though they note it is dark, humid and wet. Neither parents have found work and worry they’ll soon be unable to afford their rent, school tuition and the basic needs of their family.


SUPPORT NETWORK



Mary Grace Bourn
Host
I am a high school student in Utah, United States, that is working with my club to raise money for Suha and Waseem.
$500 Goal



Oftentimes, I hear people speaking about how they wish that they had enough money to save Syria. What they don’t realize is that their money can save a family. Through this campaign, I want to make a difference in Suha and Wasseem’s family and to inspire people in my community to donate or possibly start campaigns of their own!
