BENEFITING: FILMAID INTERNATIONAL

THE STORY:

For as little as a $10.00 donation in honor/memory of your father (or another special person in your life) you will help to bring dignity and respect to refugee fathers, who are critical role models for young men in the camps.  Your donation will pay for the refugee produced film and screening of a new film "The Father's Gift",  focusing on the struggles and triumphs of refugee fathers like Mohammed.  

Ten year old Myram and her father, Muhammed (photo left) are Syrian refugees living in Azraq, Jordan.  Two years ago, having lost two brothers to the war, Mohammed was forced to make the heart wrenching choice between staying in Syria with his ailing mother, or fleeing war and destruction, under the threat of gunfire, for the sake of his children’s lives.

Many refugee fathers (and mothers) have been forced to make the same cruel decision to flee their homes for the sake of their children.  Once in the camps, these brave refugee fathers often feel deeply humiliated by their inability to support their families, to move freely or to make the even the simplest decisions about their children's education and their future. They often suffer from feelings of guilt, having fled, instead of staying to protect their homeland by “fighting like a man”. 

Mohammed, unable to find employment, has turned his energy into a positive force for the refugee community.  He is now an advocate for the needs of refugees, helping them navigate the complex system of benefits available in the camps.  Mohammed is one example of the many extraordinary fathers living as refugees and caring for their families under the most difficult circumstances.

Through this gift, you will help to bring dignity and respect to refugee fathers, who are critical role models for young men in the camps.
