Description

Did you know that 1.5 MILLION Syrian refugees have settled in Lebanon since 2011? That's equivalent to 125 million refugees flooding into the United States over the last 7 years.

Syria's civil war has resulted in a horrible situation for its innocent people, but it's remarkable to see how Lebanon has opened their arms beyond their means to host these refugees.

Today, my friend Georgio and I contacted an NGO (The Humanitarian Foundation for Social Welfare & Education), who escorted us to a refugee camp with about 100 families living inside. I sat down with several families to hear their life stories and see how they have been impacted by the war.

I was so nervous before going in because I had never interacted with a Syrian or a refugee before, but I quickly found my comfort zone when I realized they are all people like you and me. They were all so friendly -- insisting that we stay in their houses longer for tea and coffee and enjoying our time spent together.

It was a very touching and emotional day for me, and I sincerely hope that these Syrian refugees get to return home soon.

If you'd like to donate for the Syrian refugee's food, health and life (anything will help) -- please do so on the following link
