Meet Haineyehya. She's 6 years old and has my heart wrapped around her little finger. Until last night, I was unfamiliar with this young girl who left her home with her father and 4 siblings (no mention of her mother) to find a safe place to call home. Can any of us imagine leaving the only home/country we've known to make this journey as a 6 year old?
Enter Humanwire. Haineyehya and her family needed support and Andrew sought a way for himself and others to help that feels more personal. These families aren't asking for anything and we are asking FOR them - we only need to raise $1600 - which will go to pay for food, housing supplies, a heating machine and medical care for her father whom broke both his legs and cannot work currently. That's all they need to eat good meals, have better shelter and be warm.
More than 43 million people worldwide are now forcibly displaced as a result of conflict and persecution. Half of all refugees in the world are children 17 and under, most of which have lost family, home, school and friends.
We all see the heartache and pain of people fleeing their homes because there is no hope left. "...parents puts their child on a boat when the sea is safer than the land”. Haineyehya and her family left to find a safer place and now we can help make that place a bit better. Please take a moment and give any amount that you can, in doing so, we'll help at least one of these children today.
