The Al-Shtaywi Family


Originally from Homs, Syria these three siblings sleep in a tent on farmland in Lebanon with their other three siblings. After their family’s house was pillaged of everything including even their refrigerator, stove and washing machine, and after their father was kidnapped (and luckily returned unscathed), they fled years ago.

Having spent most their lives moving from place-to-place, only recently have some of the children been enrolled in school. Amina (11) and Iman (9) are in grade 2 and Abdallah (7) is in grade 1.

The kids’ father Firas suffers from kidney stones that have gone untreated. He occasionally works in construction earning $180 USD per month which accounts for the total income for the whole family.


Sal Steven-Hubbard
I have been horrified and heartsick about the ongoing refugee crisis in the middle east, and what has been done to millions of Syrian families. I wish my government would do more, but in the absence of that am glad to try to do something, however small. I live in Manchester, New Hampshire.

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.
