The Human Faces Behind the Statistics

Syrian father we transported with his family from beach to bus stop.

This good man from Homs, Syria was travelling with his entire family. We squeezed them all into the nine-seater van and he enjoyed chatting with us in excellent English as we bounced along the road. A man of great dignity he spoke with pride of his grown-up children, their university education and their hopes of a new life in Germany, free from the terrors of the war in Syria.

It is people like this family that you are helping us to help with your generous donations. I thank you on their behalf: they are full of gratitude for everything Europe and its people are doing for them.
