We left our home in Idlib three years ago to escape the war after our father was detained for a short period. Since leaving, we have been working odd jobs to help our mother and father. We have been out of school for one year to work more hours to support our family. Our father collects garbage on the streets and our mother is a maid at the school. After Karam visited us last month, we are so excited to start school. We all are very passionate about education, and are looking forward to going back to school.
UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2016: "We are so excited to be going back to school. This summer we want to Antakya but we really missed our friends and our teachers. We have to be the first in our classes and I think we can do it since we will all motivate each other to work hard! We really missed our friends during the vacation."
By contributing $50 a month, you'll join other donors to ensure we have access to quality education and a safe home.
Karam will send you periodic updates on your sponsored family in the months of March, June, September, and December.
We will do our best to match donors to their chosen family, but reserve the right to allocate funds to families in most need.
