The depth of a father's love for his daughter, will make the father do anything for his daughter's life for the better. That is what Abdul Hallim al-Attar did for his daughter, Reem.

Abdul is a Palestinian Syrian from the Yarmouk refugee camp, probably one of the worst places to stay in Syria now. He is a single father with two children, Abdelillah (boy) 9 years old, and Reem (female) aged 4 1/2 years.

Simonarson also started Indiegogo's campaign to collect a total of $5,000 for the family. After three months, the campaign generated nearly $190,000 in donations.

And, now... he has opened three businesses. "If God wants to give you something, you will get it," he told AP with a smile despite the liquefaction issue. This two-man father received only 40 percent of $168,000, total after processing and banking costs.
