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.

Throwing this out to the universe: we are moving a family of 5 from a 2nd floor apartment in Worcester to a 1st floor apartment in Worcester. The father is a paraplegic with a frail wife and 3 littles.
The move is this Saturday August 5th.
*please, we are in desperate need of volunteers to help us move this family. You can bring your children! Make it a family event of goodness.
**we need 3 full beds/box springs/frames
**we need everything from couches to drinking glasses to sheets and grocery gift cards to stock the fridge.
Even if you join us in Worcester for a couple hours max, many hands make light work. Please consider! You will be rewarded with coffee, donuts and good karma😁
Just sign up for anytime around 10am-3pm in comments section and I will PM details.
Thank you!
