Letters of Hope
Join the Movement
Today, more refugees than at any other time in history have fled unimaginable violence and persecution in search of safety and a more promising future for their children. Our Letters of Hope initiative started in 2016 when CARE Package recipients in the United States, themselves refugees following WWII, wrote letters of support to Syrian children, bridging the great distance and circumstances that separated them. That outreach has inspired thousands of people around the world to send their own heartfelt messages. Refugees need support now more than ever. Share your own letter of hope today and join the movement to stand in solidarity with refugees everywhere.

Once child refugees themselves in war-ravaged Europe after World War II, recipients of the original CARE Packages write letters to Syrian children whose families have fled to Jordan, resulting in some deeply moving connections.
