Homayoon’s Story

by: Homayoon, an Afghan refugee in Belgium

Dear Sir,Madam,

My name is Homayoon.

I’m 16 years old and come from Afghanistan.

I arrived in Belgium when I was 13 years old.

I fled from my town because I had a lot of troubles there.

When I arrived here I didn’t know where my family was, because they fled with me, but on our way I lost them.

I succeeded in tracing them, they lived in extreme poverty in Kaboul.

With the help of Caritas we succeeded in getting all the papers for a visum to Europe.

But than remained the problem of the cost of our flight to Belgium.

Caritas told me of the M4M organisation.

We were so happy to hear that you could help us paying our ticket for the flight.

My mother, my brothers, my sister and myself want to thank you for this marvellous gift. 

We also want to thank Caritas for helping us all the way long.

They arrived safely this morning in Zaventem and we are very happy that we are all together now and can begin to start a new life.

Thanks again.

Yours faithfully,


How Miles4Migrants helps

We collaborate with a network of global non-governmental organization (NGO) partners who work directly with refugees and migrants to identify and verify individuals who are financially unable to afford air travel. Once our partners submit flight requests, we use donated frequent flyer miles, credit card points, travel vouchers, and cash to eliminate transportation barriers for the most vulnerable individuals affected by war, persecution, or climate disaster. Our goal is to help these individuals reunite with their loved ones and start a new life in a safe environment.

Support our work

– According to the United Nations, there are currently 108 million individuals forcibly displaced from their homes worldwide.  

– The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that seeking asylum is a fundamental human right. Everyone has the right to life and liberty. Everyone has the right to freedom from fear. Everyone has the right to seek asylum from persecution.

As migration is often the last option for survival, migrants may embark on clandestine journeys, subject to danger, extortion, and inhumane conditions

Once they finally get legal approval for resettlement, migrants face another challenge that makes the journey seem impossible: the transportation costs.

There are many ways for you to get involved and help us continue our work:

You can donate cash to help us cover operational expenses or contribute your unused air miles, credit card points, or travel vouchers to help us book flights for refugees and asylum seekers. Additionally, you can help us spread the word about our cause and our impact on the lives of those we serve.

Every donation, no matter how big or small, has the power to make a difference. Thank you for considering supporting our mission.
