Puneh Ala’i is the founder of For The Unseen, a not-for-profit serving those in need the world over. Puneh was raised by immigrant parents who raised her with the belief that “Mankind is One” and service is a key factor in contributing to this life. Puneh’s vision to create For The Unseen was ignited in a small war-torn corner of the world – Syria. If you had asked her when she was there a few years ago, she would have never imagined she would be the founder of a 501c3 organization that has provided thousands of dollars of medical aid, food, toys, and even schooling to the Syrian refugees. Puneh has worked with children ever since she can remember, but working with Syrian refugee children was a transformational experience. Even in the midst of war, despair, loss, and nothingness, their purity and love can shine through and prevailed. It was with this flame of love and hope in her heart that Puneh established For The Unseen. She wants to reach out over the world and help serve those in need with food, shelter, medical support, but most of all love and hope. She believes that in the path of service, it is only love and hope that can truly heal wounds and help them overcome the challenges they face.
