Eyesonrefugees

In December of 2015, Jennifer Silverstone traveled from Boston to refugee camps in France. The two camps, located in Calais and Dunkirk, are where thousands of Syrian families have ended up after their long journeys in search of shelter from the war. The conditions in the camps are difficult. Jennifer (a practicing nurse) provided material necessities, medical care, friendship, and human kindness.

After meeting the refugees and witnessing life in the camps, Jennifer knew that life would never be the same. Jennifer returned to Boston with a determination to help as many refugees as possible. From this, Eyes on Refugees was born.

Eyes on Refugees supports families fleeing war and persecution and seeks to raise awareness of the refugee crisis.Jennifer continues to travel to refugee camps in Europe to help provide sustainable solutions in a long-term crisis.

We also work locally in the state of Massachusetts to help newly resettled refugees get the support and resources they need. Eyes on Refugees is a small organization but a force. While this war has proven to have displaced an unprecedented amount of humans and it can feel overwhelming.

Our organization's motto is: Save One. Save a Generation.

Good evening, fine humans,
We are still collecting donations for our lovely little family! If you would like to fill her refrigerator on moving day, that is a necessary and helpful give. Also, if you would like to fill her pantry with basic essentials, that is a helpful give or if you would like to support a couple months of gas, electric and or rent that would be AMAZING!
Thank you to all who have given and continue to support the most vulnerable that have fled atrocities in their homelands and have broke an ocean in half only to come to our land of plenty and have enormous difficulty finding safety and refuge here in Massachusetts.
These humans are well educated, have transferable skills but do not have a tribe surrounding them to empower them and point them in the direction of success----until they come into OUR fold of goodness. YOU are their tribe and YOU have helped us place to date 6 families in safety and onto roads of success!!!!!!! Bless all of you for your empathy and compassion!

Good evening friends!
We have a light at the end of the tunnel! This sweet family will be in their stable housing sooner than expected! Big sigh of relief! The children are settled in school and in no time we hope for employment for the only head of household.
Can we strive for more than we originally set out for? You know that every penny will go to make this small, struggling family become an assimilated and healthy family that will lead a safe and fulfilling life!!!
Please send this out to your networks and watch it go!!
Thank you to all who have helped this sweet family!!!

Good Morning friends,
As you know, the housing is coming but it has been delayed. What was originally supposed to be a couple weeks has turned into well over a month.
There is an end in sight and that is one that is coming very soon and has Lina and her children in stable housing going to school in their new zip code.
We had to spend part of this fundraiser on a car and temporary housing which is incredibly expensive if it requires furniture and is only short term.
Please help so we have enough in donation money for 1st last and security to get her into her new place!
Thank you to all who have helped this sweet family!!!

We received a blow regarding stable housing for our single parent family! The stable apartment will not he ready until October 31st. So we now have the challenge to raise funds to keep her in temporary housing until October 31st. Our original goal for this family was set with an apartment move in date of October 1. The last campaign money went to: reliable small used car 3100, 3900 for housing until September 28th and then from Sept -28-Oct 21st 1900and 1400 was given for school clothes and food for the next 2 weeks leaving $70.We now have the job of raising 1st, last and security and food money. Market basket gc are great too!!!Can you do this again?!!! Yes you can and you want to!!! Let's take this family all the way to success!!! The mother has work once she is in her apartment. The children will be in school in their new neighborhood tomorrow. Let's bring this family all of the way to stability!!!

Thank you everyone! We need received a bit of a blow when it comes to her apartment: we thought it would be ready early October and now it has been pushed to mid to late October. We have scrambled to find housing for these dates and secured it. It has depleted the fund. So we will not have first, last and security for her move in.
Thank you to all who have helped this sweet family!!!
