She further wrote, “I started this Syrian journey with my mom’s prayers. It is her dream that I am living right now and her wish that I am fulfilling. It is such a sweet thing and I wanted to share her messages. My heart swells when I read these. This is why I think mothers are so sacred and a lot of these Syrian kids have lost theirs. This is where you come in, you guys are amazing human beings, you’ve helped me put a smile on these children’s faces even if it is for a bit”.
Later in the same post Armeena thanked people for their generosity. Because of which they were able to help people in need. “I am amazed at the love, support and the donations pouring in, I am grateful FROM the heart 🙏🏻 Thank you so much. I begin day two with my mother in my thoughts”.
