He loves school. He loves his friends. He keeps every worksheet and everything we make in class. Aisha bought him a folder which he keeps at home, with all of his work proudly filed away.
One day Ahmad came to Bukra Ahla with a bag of the few toys he owns, and asked if he could give them out to his class. Aisha tells me he refused to leave the house without them. He quietly gave one toy away to each of the children. He wanted nothing in return, no thank you, no praise.
This child, living in severe poverty, willing to give away the little he has just to make his friends smile, is he not welcome?
He has the purest heart and the most beautiful spirit. Yet he has no place in the world where he is safe, or welcome.
Because he is a Syrian refugee.
SB Overseas is fighting not only to give children like Ahmad the education they deserve, but also a place where they can be truly loved, welcomed and wanted. Anything you are able to give will help this incredible organisation continue it’s vital work. Please donate. Thankyou.
