OUR CURRENT CAMPAIGN:
Kayra has been in touch with the two sisters and their family and made every attempt to visit them on a regular basis.
About Sara, Hala and the Al-Rahmoun Family
Sara (10) & Hala (12) are sisters who lived a modest life in Syria until the war started. Their father used to build homes but when the war started,the work dried up so he started baking & selling cakes in the street to get by.
In April, 2016 they decided to leave for Greece. The family traveled in an inflatable raft across the sea from Turkey to Greece, landing on Chios Island, where the closed camps are notoriously overcrowded.
Kayra Martinez and her team are now working on trying to find the family a container at a camp nearby Athens where they can have long term housing and support, until either they leave Greece through reunification or they stay in the camp.
