Funded Requests

All of the requests on this page are from specific individuals, families or organizations. One of the core values of HYH is that only the individuals themselves know what they want or need and that it is critical to take the time to ask them. When you fund an Individual Request, you are providing something that not only the individual, family or organization needs but you are also supporting another HYH core value which is that immigrants, migrants and refugees should feel valued, respected and appreciated. Basically, your support is saying, “we love you and the fact that you are here!”

Tablet and Headset

Our client has multiple barriers at school. She has a history of inconsistent education as well as a language barrier. Her school is able to provide the students with electronics while they are present, but because she is so young (under 12), they do not allow her to take the electronics home.

The school has advised the sponsor to have her review additional educational videos and programs online at home, but the sponsor is unable to afford this due to a lack of work authorization and is struggling to meet other basic needs. If our client were to receive this tablet and the Bluetooth headset that we are requesting, it would help make a huge difference in her life. She would be able to continue her education and further her progress at home, and it would be a big help to the sponsor, so they don’t have to struggle to get this resource and debate about meeting other basic needs.

Soccer Ball

Danny recently arrived from Honduras. His Mom works hard to provide for her three children. She wakes up early to make breakfast for Danny and his two younger sisters.

When she arrives home from her 10-12 hour shift, she prepares the next day’s meals for her children. Danny loves to play soccer and is quite good at it. He plays soccer nearly every day at a soccer field near his home. A new soccer ball would allow him to keep pursuing his love for the sport.

Bicycle

Having the opportunity to at least submit this request has already brought a smile to the face of Dennis, a minor that is newly arrived to Miami FL. Dennis Mola, made the brave decision, at 17 years old, to escape the many dangers of his home country (Nicaragua) and be able to possibly obtain the “American Dream”. Dennis is a humble, kind-hearted person who has advocated for himself and his future from the moment he stepped foot on US soil.

Although he has faced several hardships since his arrival to the USA, Dennis has never ceased to have a resilient and hopeful outlook on life. It has been truly inspiring and impactful to watch Dennis get up, dust himself off, put a smile on and keep going every single time he faces a challenge. Dennis dreams to go to school and learn English because he knows that this is what will help him succeed. Unfortunately, Dennis does not have family or people of support in the USA, other than the case manager who is assisting him in requesting this donation. A bicycle donation will completely change Dennis’ life and provide him with the transportation that he urgently needs to get to and from school in the busy city of Miami FL. A bicycle will also aid Dennis with his two-hour walks to the grocery store every week. A bicycle donation to Dennis would mean more than we could ever comprehend. It would make Dennis’ life easier on a daily basis while being the first step to the “American Dream”.

This request is for the Ishaqzoi family of 5 people. The family was evacuated from Afghanistan and arrived in the US in August 2021. The father is head of the family and responsible for all expenses.

He is the only one working and keeping up with all finances at home. Thanks to some additional Afghan funding through CCCS, it made it possible for them to rent an apt in Fresh Meadows, NY where he moved with his mother, wife, son (1.5 yrs old), and his sister-in-law. They need two laptops, one for Mr. Ishaqzoi and the other one for his wife who is attending online English classes and searching for higher education.
