Compelling Global Stories Help Us Care About Crises Far Away

Dear Friends,

When Nour Altallaa was growing up in the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor, she always thought her mother would be by her side when she had her first child. Instead, she learned about childbirth in a German refugee camp using online videos. She is one of 5 million Syrians who have fled the country to escape civil war. 

Nour’s story is featured in TIME’s powerful “Finding Home” series that follows three mothers and their babies over a year, capturing their journey through their pregnancies, births, experiences in refugee camps and their struggles to seek asylum in Europe. 

When she took her baby Rahaf home from the hospital, Nour said: “I don’t know what is normal, but I will look on the Internet. I learned from YouTube how to crochet dresses. I learned about childbirth. And now I will look up how to take care of a new baby.” 
Help the Pulitzer Center support more reporting projects like this!

These mothers’ stories made me think about the similarities and differences between their experiences and the early days of my own children. 

TIME’s migration series, made possible with support from the Pulitzer Center, shows the human stories at the heart of the Syrian refugee crisis and sheds light on the experiences of many other vulnerable groups crossing borders to escape persecution, war or violence. 

It’s our job to help you care about what’s happening beyond our borders

The Pulitzer Center is the leading source of support for international reporting—and the only journalism organization incorporating this reporting into comprehensive educational programs.

A teacher who brought her students to our “Finding Home” art installation at Photoville in New York effectively summed up the experience: “How often do we ask each other ‘Where are you from? Where is your family from?’ These children don’t have an answer for that… Do you think that affects how they identify? Do you think that affects anything about their lives?”

We are a nonprofit journalism organization with a big mission and a big challenge—support global journalism that explains what’s happening in the world and spur U.S. audiences to care.  

A generous gift does more than send journalists to a school or college campus to share their reporting with the next generation or send a reporter into the field to report the next migration story.
 
Your gift confirms that you care. I hope that you will give generously so we can tell Nour’s story and many more like it.

Join those who know—and care!
