REFUGEE CRISIS

How This 5 Year-Old Syrian Refugee is Working to Feed his Family.

To move forward consider giving back.

Meet Mohammed - a Syrian refugee who works the streets of Istanbul selling pencils, chocolates, and toys until midnight every day. His smile and charisma put just enough money to help his family through the toughest of times after losing their everything in Syria.

With over 1.5 million school-aged Syrian refugee children living in Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon, approximately half of them do not have access to formal education.  Barriers such as child labor, enrolment requirements, language difficulties, and a lack of support are keeping children out of the classroom. Together, we can change that for 5 year-old Hamoodee, and offer him an education, shelter and food. Providing him with a better future!

5 years on, and you're still making an impact! After a turbulent past year, Hamoodee's local school had to close indefinitely. Which forced him to study from home over the past year, he was in need of a laptop to keep up with the classes each day. Thanks to your unconditional support this year, he was able to purchase a new laptop that's allowing him to keep up with his studies, and strive for the top of his class! Building his future thanks to your help in the past. We've documented the surprise and will be sharing this update in a new video on our YouTube channel very soon!

With ongoing education in Istanbul for the past 2 years, Hamoodee can now fluently speak Turkish! Helping him make new friends his age and supporting him with the local curriculum. His favorite subject is maths and this year he's passed the majority of his exams!

Things have also changed for his family too. His father is now working in a local store, supporting his family the way he's always wanted. He can now even treat them to the occasional gift!
