Laptop for Marinaya
Organized by: Jonas Gebhardt
A lot of refugees from Syria arrived in Europe and especially Germany during the past 6 months as a result of the war there.
The war is ongoing since almost 5 years now and sadly made the news headlines due to severe human rights violations, with multiple massacres occurring. By today, between 300,000-500,000 people have been killed and there are around 4,000,000 refugees.
Sharron (member of the Knowledge Management Team at eBay in Germany) volunteered last year to help the arriving refugees to settle and get started in Berlin, Germany.
While doing that, she developed a personal relationship to a 16 year old girl called Marinaya. Since the girl’s parents didn’t make it to Germany, she is basically all on her own now and doesn’t have anyone who can speak for her from a legal perspective until she turns officially into an adult when she is 18 years old.
In an act of kindness and generosity, Sharron decided together with Marinaya that she wants to become her legal guardian. They went to court earlier this week and everything went through successfully.
Sharron will help Marinaya to start a new and successful life in Germany. Marinaya has big goals and wants to visit university later to become a doctor.
With this fundraiser we will raise money to help Sharron to buy a laptop for Marinaya.
If more money than the goal will be raised, Sharron will use it to get Marinaya other basics that she may need.
