Requests - Organizations & Individual

Requests are listed by most current at the top. Please consider scrolling to the bottom of the list to fund requests that have been waiting the longest. Thank You! 

All of the requests on this page are from specific individuals, families or organizations. One of the core values of HYH is: 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 a 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: 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!”

Looking for a unique gift for someone?
Fund a request and we will send him/her a little gift box with a description of the request inside and any personal message you would like us to add.
When you check out just check off the box that it is a gift and leave the address to send it to in the comment section.

Electric Bike

Thierno is an asylee from Guinea who is currently living with a friend in New York while he gets on his feet and adjusts to his new circumstances. He wants to help contribute to rent and grocery costs, but is unable to start work as a food delivery person without a bicycle. Couriers on regular bikes struggle with hills and exhaustion after a long shift, and are often unable to keep up with the number of deliveries and short delivery times expected of them.

Thierno wants to be an efficient and competent courier and excel at his new job, and an electric bike would be a tremendous help that would allow him to do so. Donating an electric bike to Thierno will provide him with the means to support himself as a courier and become a proud contributing member of his household.

Diapers - 1 Month Supply #2

Maria is a 16-year-old single mother from Central America who is currently living with her mother in Queens. Maria is unemployed and has no income, as she spends her time caring for her one-year-old daughter, Camila. Maria’s most pressing need is diapers for her daughter.

Diapers are very expensive for someone in her position, but they are not covered by assistance programs like food stamps. Maria would be extremely grateful to receive a donation of diapers that would allow her to keep her daughter safe, clean, and healthy.

Laptop Computer

Jaba is an asylee from Bangladesh currently living in Queens, NY. At the age of 30, Jaba has recently graduated from college. This is a great accomplishment and has prepared Jaba to start a career in the United States now that she has been granted asylum.

Having a laptop computer will help her to apply for jobs online on her own and to work from home once she has secured a job. The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed many jobs to virtual platforms, and without a computer with access to the internet, Jaba will be unable to work. It is important to Jaba to be a productive and self-sufficient member of American society, and acquiring a laptop computer from which she can search for and secure full-time employment in her field is the first step to that goal.

Steel Toe Safety Shoe

These shoes are a vitally important purchase because they will help our new arrival work safely. Without these shoes, he will be unable to work every day, which means he will be unable to provide for himself and pay for housing and food. We (Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency) are very lucky to have access to other shoe donations, but unfortunately, none of those shoes will fit this client or be suitable for his workplace.

Television & Antenna

As new arrivals to the United States, this client and her family are currently learning English. A television would allow the client to learn English and stay up-to-date on what is going on in Charlotte, which is a matter of safety and community integration. This is even more pressing since ESL classes can not currently take place in person, due to Coronavirus.

Additionally, this client is elderly and can not work, so a television would give her something to do and allow her to connect to her new home. In order for the clients to watch television and gain all of the benefits associated with this, they will need a television antenna. As they are not yet able to afford cable, the antenna is necessary for the television to work.

Medical Bill

***Thank you to generous donor #1 who reduced the bill by $500.00!" ***Thank you to generous donor #2 who reduced the bill by $500.00!" ***"Thank you to generous donor #3 who reduced the bill by $200.00!"*** You also can make a partial payment towards this bill by making a general donation and noting in the comments that it should be applied to Carlo's medical bill. Carlos, who is 45 years old, works 10-12 hours a day 6 days a week at a farm in Addison County, VT. On Saturday 6/6/2020 he injured his foot.

The ex-ray showed a fracture that required surgery. He continued to work even after the fracture but had surgery on Wednesday 6/10 at Porter Hospital in Middlebury, VT. Carlos, a Mexican citizen, is in America to earn money to better support his family in Mexico which consists of his aging parents, wife and son who has muscular dystrophy. Carlos pays for his son's bi-weekly medical visits with a specialist. Carlos does not qualify for any medical insurance plan and does not receive medical insurance through his work. He cannot claim relatives in Mexico as dependents for purposes of financial assistance through the hospital. He has incurred medical bills amounting to tens of thousands of dollars. Making payments on this bill will severely inhibit his ability to continue to provide for his family. Carlos would appreciate any support to help him pay this bill.

Attorney Fees

This client came to the US during the summer when the federal government was separating parents from their children at the border. The children were reunited with their mother but are now struggling to pay legal fees related to their asylum case. The client's hours at work have been reduced due to the current pandemic.

The family owes their attorney money and would be very grateful for any assistance in paying this fee. She has until July to pay the money according to the payment plan arranged with the attorney. Unaccompanied children served by Catholic Charities Atlanta are children who cross our borders and have no parent or legal guardian who is available to provide for their care and physical custody. For a limited number of Unaccompanied Children, the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement funds home studies and post-release services by social services providers to help ensure children are released into safe placements and to facilitate family and community integration after reunification.
