Six-year-old Hammoudi was born in Damascus with complex physical and mental disabilities. He was given two life-saving operations by the Syrian health service, but his third operation was cancelled when violence overtook the country.
More than one in five refugees suffer from some form of impairment, whether from birth, illness, accident, or a conflict-related injury. Syrian refugees with disabilities often can't get the care they need.
Now – with the help of your donations and the work of our partner, Lebanese Physically Handicapped Union (LPHU), Hammoudi has learned to walk for the first time.
