Little Louay


Louay’s mother Fatima explains: “I was living in Al Qaboun in Damascus with my husband and kids when the demonstrations began and the regime army entered our region. They began bombing and arresting people so I took my kids and left to another region where my mother lived. We stayed there for about a year and three months but the war became so bad, we decided to flee to Lebanon illegally, making our way to a camp in Arsal. I then learned my home has been destroyed by a bombing. Unfortunately, when we were in Arsal, my son Louay (11) fell from the building and fractured his skull.”

The UNHCR and volunteers facilitated two major surgeries for Louay in Lebanon, but in order for him to recover, the treating physicians strongly recommended additional physical and psychological support outside of their camp, prompting the family to move to Tripoli. Without further help he will not be able to return to school again. Louay is also in need of a special diet (high calories and quality fat acids). Fatima said he is at home all day, screaming, hitting on his head and slowly becoming more depressed.

When asked about his hobbies, Louay said “I like to study space science”.

$2500 Goal

I, like many of you, want to do more to help during this unbelievable crisis. If we can help one child get the help he needs we have made a difference.

Please donate even just a few dollars to help Little Louay get the help and medical care he needs to recover. His family will be so relieved to have him get the help he needs and to be able to return to school. Let’s do this.

Thank you!
