Welcome to California! The Samsam family is a mom, dad, daughter, and son who arrived in March 2016 to Southern California from Syria. Mom and Dad married just before war broke out and they were forced to flee Syria for Jordan, where their daughter was born. Two years ago, Dad suffered a massive heart attack and has been unable to work. Their baby boy was born just a few months after Dad's heart attack. The Samsam family urgently needs clothes and blankets so they can be safe and warm, and a laptop so that Dad can find and take on telecommuting jobs.
The AlSmadi family arrived from Syria and resettled in California. Like many refugee families grandparents are important and kept close. For that AlSmadi family that means 7 people living together, mom, dad, 2 daughters (ages 9 and 11), 1 son (age 9) and the grandparents. The twins rely on a wheelchair. Due to their disability the family requires additional help. Luckily you, the Miry's List community have big hearts and love a challenge. This wish list contains basic household and personal supplies that will allow this loving family to continue their path to a safe and happy home in America. Thank you for your generous gifts of items, time, and money.
