Walid, Khaldyeh and Ghadeer


Before conflict came to Syria, Walid (6), Khaldyeh (5) and Ghadeer (4) lived with their parents and younger sibling Ihklas (3) near Aleppo. Their father Jaber Wadi (27) worked as a shepherd and their mother Midala was studying. One day in 2013, Jaber Wadi had been to the bakery when, without warning, a shell dropped on top of the building. Remembering the day, he describes it as a “massacre…bread dunked in blood.” Shrapnel severely injured his hand and he was rushed to Turkey for medical treatment.

Now living in Lebanon, the family recently welcomed their newborn Saif into the home but remain in pure survival mode. Midala is blind and young Saif has a hole in his heart. When asked about his outlook, Jaber Wali said he believes with a small investment in sheep, he could turn things around.


Andrew Hyde and Jeremy LaTrasse
$2000 Goal

Hello friends! Jeremy and I are riding bicycles across the USA from April to June, 2017. We’re raising money through Humanwire and hope to fund quite a few families and introduce you to them. The beauty of a bike is often a one on one connection to the world and the beauty of Humanwire is creating a one on one friendship with a refugee. By funding our ride you will get both video content from the ride and also get to meet a refugee via a Skype call and get a relationship started. We are taking the Southern Tier bike route across the USA, so from San Diego, California to St. Augustine, Florida. We will be posting on Instagram [Andrew], Twitter [Andrew, Jeremy] and our blogs about the trip [Andrew].

Please find our Bike campaign page here.



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.
