“I tie scarves around my boys’ bellies at night so they don’t wake up crying from stomach aches because they are hungry…I know the world has forgotten us; we’re too much of a burden. They’ve given up on us too,” says Fatmeh, a Syrian refugee in Lebanon. Those words keep ringing in my mind and wont leave my thoughts. As a mother I can't imagine what I would do in Fatmeh's situation and how is she is surviving. I am raising money for the World Food Program. In January, due to lack of funding, WFP was forced to reduce the amount of money loaded onto electronic food cards it provides for refugees from US$27 to US$19 per person each month. In July, deeper cuts were introduced, bringing the value down to US$13.5. Please make a donation to help Fatmeh and other families feed their children and meet their basic needs. Every donation will make a HUGE difference. Make a difference in a child's life. All the money raised will go to the wfp.
