Wahiba and her three kids in Istanbul, January 2017, three years after fleeing their home in Syria.

When bombs and snipers first entered their peaceful town, Wahiba fled with her children for Turkey. Her husband Muhammed remained attempting to earn money for his sister’s family. Fear of being arrested or forced to join a military spurred his move to Turkey more recently to rejoin his family.

Both Wahiba and Muhammed suffer from tuberculosis and are both on medication, while Muhamed lives with a back injury and thyroid issues. Due to the pain in his back he can’t engage in intense work, and is currently employed in a supermarket. Wahiba is unemployed due to her health problems and to stay with the children at home.

Wahiba’s top priorities include food, medicine and education for the kids.

We are working with our Global Connections classes at Downers Grove South High School to raise money for multiple refugee families through Humanwire. This is part of a greater unit of study that includes teaching our students about social responsibility, empathy, and issues affecting people around the world today.  Any and all support you can provide is greatly appreciated!!!

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.
