Volunteer teaches Syrian teen refugee to paint

Like many refugees, Yousef, a Syrian teen who escaped civil war and ISIS, was stranded in Greece with little to do other than to wait for an unknown future. A few months back, Yousef approached our network, asking for help to learn how to paint. Through volunteer help, and support from his family and friends, he has learned to paint and has sold several of his pieces internationally - including in Greece, Spain, Israel, and across the United States. The money he makes from his paintings goes directly to supporting his family, who recently received asylum and was reunited with his brother in Germany. If you are interested in buying one of his pieces, contact us!
