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.

We believe in knowing our neighbors. We believe in love and families. We believe in the power of tolerance and acceptance. We urge you to get to know the new members of our communities. Their stories are inspiring and beautiful.

Thanks to all of you wonderful donors, the Alloh family is doing incredibly well! Because of you, we have been able to help them navigate their health care and provide transportation to their doctor's appointments. Here are Baraa and Sidra, two of the lovely Alloh children, playing in the doctor's office while the family waits for their appointments.
