The Akhras family was living in a small town on the outskirts of Damascus, Syria. In 2012, militants attacked, bombing houses all around them. After moving from house to house, village to village, the family was unable to find safety and fled to Jordan.
In Jordan, Mr. Akhras found work at a chicken restaurant, having had previous experience from Syria. Fortunately, the children attend school in Jordan, but the family’s youngest child, Ahmad, is in need of a liver transplant.
The kids have wonderful dreams for the future, such as Zainab (11) who wants to be an engineer and Mohammad (9) who wants to become a pilot.
