Support a Family
The most important way WALY impacts the world, is to directly connect mother to mother. Caseworkers in war torn areas find mothers in the most dire situations. WALY connects them to mothers who are waiting to help by giving friendship, love, and financial aid. Our hope is that your WALYfamily relationship becomes a significant source of support and love for you and your family.
Here’s what you need to know:
Be sure that you are ready for a big addition to your life. As a WALYmom, you will be providing the greatest level of assistance, and with it comes the highest level of commitment. These families will become like your own, and are not a commitment of only months.
Be sure that you are in a position to give financially, or it will break your heart to know and not be able to help. There are limits on what you may give per month and, within that, it is at your discretion.
WALY will match you with a family who has children of similar ages, similar circumstances, or something you can relate on. If that isn’t important to you, we will connect you to the family in most need. You will be directed about your family specifically on any security issues for them that you need to be aware of, and how to keep them safe in WALY. You will be connected to a mother that has been, or is still, in the midst of a war zone. She will have children, and it is likely that your mother will be a first time provider of security and items of daily life. She will likely be overwhelmed and in shock. You will be there to help give her some normalcy, friendship, love and care, as well as some financial support.
There will be a team guiding both sides of the conversation while it's new so that the relationship can grow and flourish. You will have a caseworker here, a case worker there, and a translator on your conversation thread, and your case worker will be available if any questions or issues arise. We will walk you, step by step, through the process of becoming truly connected. In these friendships that become family, there cannot be discussed anything of a political nature, it is absolutely interpersonal only. WALY has seen many families blessed and enriched by this program, and we would love for you and your family to be included in those who are making a real difference for families in need of so much love.
If you are wanting to help these refugee mothers, but this isn't a good fit, consider donating to the WALYfamily Fund in any amount, as often as you would like to. Every penny will go to a refugee family.
