So Touching! He Sells Pen on the street to survive with his little daughter, Then A Stranger Did This to Him @ 3:22 am On Apr 23, 2016

A Syrian refugee, Abdul Halim al-Attar was attempting to support his family by selling pens in Beirut, carrying his daughter with him as he did.

His 4-year-old daughter Reem was his only family in with him, his wife having returned to Syria months after they fled. Al-Attar stayed with Reem, deciding Syria was no place for his girl.

But just one picture changed Abdul and his daughter's lives. Gissur Simonarso, a web developer from Norway, started a crowdfunding venture to raise money for the two -- the final amount totaling over $200,000.


Al-Attar used the money to open up businesses in Lebanon and, further, he hired refugees to work in them providing livelihoods for people just like him.


"Not only did my life change, but also the lives of my children and the lives of people in Syria whom I helped."

From pen-seller on the streets to entrepreneur and provider, al-Attar is an amazing example of what hope and philanthropy can do for people.
