Syrian Family of six including an eight-year-old boy, pictured here in the middle, who has been diagnosed with a severe case of Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a rare genetic disorder that causes brittle bones and stunted growth. Mom is young, in her mid twenties, and she is an INCREDIBLE cook who bakes delicious cakes.
Family of six (mom; dad; four children ages 2, 6, 7, 8) arrived from Afghanistan on March 27, 2017. The father is a BBA holder and was working with the US army in Afghanistan. He speaks English and is looking for employment. Their empty apartment needs to be furnished and they are in need of basic household items.
This family of seven (children ages 4, 8, 9, 11 and 13) fled Homs, Syria in 2012, walking by foot to Jordan with their five children, including their three week old baby. They spent four years there, the first two months in a refugee camp under terrible conditions, before moving to the city. Dad makes best falafel ever.
This young family left a very tough life in Syria for more hardship in Jordan, eventually landing in Miami in August 2016 where they struggled further without jobs and no real community to connect with. Luckily an American woman helped them move to California on February 2, 2017 where they have a community, but still need some household essentials.
