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.

As Eyes On Refugees has turned its attention to the refugees that are in dire need right in our own State. Please, we need: hosts/mentors/safe free housing and donations.
We have more need than we do volunteers so please get in touch with us if you want to help in any way I listed above. Xx

"A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence."

It is important to understand not just the definition of the word "refugee," but also the context from which many of these individuals are seeking refuge. It is imperative that we do not allow politics to overshadow the plight of those who are seeking our assistance. Love and compassion must prevail.
