    “ When I receive a food package, I know that someone is thinking of us and supporting us. Which means there are people who care about us. This is so precious.”
    – Hazan

    “ I think the most important help I receive from organizations is rent assistance. This is the most important because I don’t have any income, so I would have no way to pay my rent […] Thank you for your support!
    – Rabia

    “ When we arrived here, we had nothing and no opportunity to improve our condition. My children and I might be homeless if you didn’t support us. I really appreciate your support, thank you. ”
    – Nazli

    “ Embrace Relief is very important for the refugee people, especially touching the children’s lives. The foundation is helping me with my responsibilities to my children because they send us food packages with snacks and presents for children. You are saving us.
