The Shubat Family


Muhammed left his wife Julnar and their daughter Besan (6) in Syria after being compelled to fight for one of many factions. As one of the last into Turkey before the borders were sealed, Muhammed managed to get his family out just in time.

After spending the bulk of their savings on plane tickets and relocating to Istanbul, Besan fell and broke her arm causing the family to go into debt over medical expenses.

Once a barber and a nurse, Muhammed and Julnar have had limited luck finding employment and worry about making ends meet with rent, food and basic day-to-day necessities.

$750 Goal

To all my FB friends,
I have been moved by the suffering of the Syrian refugees and am looking to help at least one family as they are displaced and trying to survive in Turkey.
Please consider donating any amount to help this family, you can read more about them on this page. I know we all have different opinions about the politics of humanitarian aid. But this is a chance to have 100% of your donation go directly to the people who need it.
“As you do it unto the least of these.”

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.
