Eyes on Refugees

In December 2015, Jennifer Silverstone traveled from Boston to refugee camps in Calais and Dunkirk, France. Thousands of families, mostly from Syria, had ended up there after long journeys in search of shelter from war and persecution. The conditions in the camps were 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. She returned to Boston with the 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. While Jennifer continues to travel to refugee camps in Europe to work towards sustainable solutions to this long-term crisis, most of our work is done locally. We provide support and resources to newly resettled refugees in Massachusetts. In short, we are welcoming our new neighbors with open arms. We are small, but we are a force. The civil war in Syria has proven to have displaced an unprecedented amount of humans and it can feel overwhelming, but we know we need to offer a helping hand to as many people as we can, one at a time.

Hello Friends!
We have local humans that have fled horrible situations to be met here in the US with nothing to greet them.
We find them lost and uninformed about what they are entitled to while they begin their assimilation in their new country. Our organization works to empower these humans to navigate to safe and dignified housing, a skill matched job with a proper employer. We make sure they have food security and a support system!
Please help us, help them!!! Any amount helps and please spread the word!

**I believe that in the end, we will all be judged for being complacent during one of the darkest times since WWII.
**Each child that has died in the M.E. at the hands of MONSTERS will stand before us and ask us how come we didn’t stop them.
**A society, a world, is judged by the way it treats its children. We have failed epically to show these children their worth.
