Syrian Refugee Matching Campaign continues!

As the GlobalGiving Syrian Refugee Matching Campaign continues, we wanted to share a story from our HOPE volunteers in the field that shows how valuable your support of our programs is.

Halile Basehir is an 18-year-old refugee from Afghanistan with cerebral paralysis. One night, he was brought to HOPE volunteers seeking medical care, suffering from a high fever and febrile convulsions. He was taken immediately to the nearest hospital to receive treatment. Following his stay in the hospital, Project HOPE volunteers made regular visits to the tent where Halile and his family were living to assess his condition. They spent timing talking to his mother, who cried, recalling how they had to carry him on their backs during their journey to Macedonia. Halile continues to be cared for by our volunteers, and is taken to the hospital for regular check-ups. While life has not been easy for Halile or his family, Project HOPE has been able to provide them with critically needed medical care and support to help them during these difficult times.

We hope that you will consider making a donation to help support individuals like Halile and his family. Thank you for your generosity!

The Matching Campaign Has Officially Begun!

The GlobalGiving Syrian Refugee Matching Campaign has officially begun! We hope that you will consider supporting our project, as your donation will be matched at 50% by GlobalGiving.org in an effort to help those effected by the refugee crisis. Your generosity will support Project HOPE’s programs and volunteers who are helping to deliver essential health services and supplies to refugees in Macedonia.

“Every day they are waiting for us at the entrance, calling our names, which gives us strength for the working day.” –Project HOPE volunteer

Our HOPE volunteers work tirelessly in their efforts to help provide the best support and care possible. One volunteer comments, “There were days when we had almost 100 examinations and interventions on a shift, sometimes up to 10 transports to the hospital and medical emergencies that kept us on our feet for field work.” With over one million people requesting transit into Macedonia as refugees just in the last month, the need for more supplies and volunteer support is growing.

The generosity of our donors is what makes our work and the work of our volunteers possible. Thank you for your support!

Maximize Your Impact! Help Refugees in Macedonia

Maximize Your Impact! Help us Support the Health and Wellbeing of Refugees in Macedonia

Project HOPE is extremely excited to be participating in GlobalGiving’s Syrian Refugee Matching Campaign! From July 12th to August 16th, GlobalGiving.org will be offering a 50% match to all donations made in support of our efforts providing health care and humanitarian aid to refugees in Macedonia. Not only will this campaign strengthen our efforts to deliver critically needed health services and care to refugees but it will also provide donors like you the opportunity to maximize your donation’s impact on the lives of those most affected by the crisis. 

Your support over the next month will help individuals such as 18-year-old Hiba, a refugee who received medical aid from Project HOPE volunteers. Hiba, whose fiancé is still in Syria, was eight months pregnant, suffering from lack of nutrition and severe stress. Thanks to the efforts of the Project HOPE team, Hiba is now seeing a psychologist and has regular visits and health assessments to help improve her condition. Project HOPE has been committed to helping those affected by the refugee crisis, and with your help, we can reach new goals and provide even more funding to support lifesaving programs.

With the start of this campaign only a few days away, we hope that you will consider making a small donation over the next month in support of stories like the one above. We also encourage you to share our project page with your peers to spread the word about the impact we are making together on the lives of refugees in Macedonia.  And remember, the matching campaign only goes until August 16th, so time is of the essence!

Project HOPE is extremely grateful to all of our amazing donors who help make our programs possible. As we begin this exciting month with GlobalGiving’s Syrian Refugee Relief Matching Campaign, we want to thank everyone for your participation and generosity. We will continue to update you on our efforts over the next month and show you the impact of your generosity on children, families and individuals who are in need of health care and services during this dire time in their lives.
