  • Emmanuel D’Silva

    I would be interested in the name, address, and contact number of the Syrian journalist who has been helping an Iraqi refugee family to gain dignity and education in Syria

  • Kathleen Dusek

    Adopt a Refuge Iraqi family program. The Chaldeans Federation is doing it. 100% of donations go to the families and you can correspond with them. I wasn’t sure if you were aware of this. It might be good to put on your links page.

  • liz Henry

    Yes, please post her contact information as I’d like to make a donation.

  • Dennis McAllister

    I would like to know if there is some way I could support the Syrian journalist who is helping the Iraqi refugees in her country.

  • Emmanuel D’Silva

    At least three persons asked for contacts of the Syrian journalist featured in the story in order to make a contribution, but there has been no response from Wide Angle staff. Do you folks care about the issues you cover, or are you only interested in TV coverage. In other words, in yourselves? I’m disappointed.

  • Tania Rakhmanova

    hello, thank you very much for your interest and offer to help. Sorry for such a late answer but I wanted to see it with Rula fisrt. I talked to Rula, the Syrian journalist you saw in the rpogramme. She was so happy to know that you want to help her. Now, it’s not that easy. If you are still interested why don’t you write me at and we’ll see what we can do for Rula
    best wishes

    Me as an Iraqi Citizen who appeared at the end of the film, is so proud of all people in the world who saw the film & tend to help the Iraqi refugees in this crisis, motivated by their instinct being human being wishing to assist their man-kind, one of them is Ms Tania.
