What will Fouad do next?

You’re helping children like Fouad start to live again – and giving them a future to look forward to.

For a six-year-old, Fouad's been through a lot.

Born in Syria just after the war started, he and his family had to flee their home.

They escaped airstrikes in Aleppo and fled to Northern Lebanon, to a refugee camp, where they still live today.

Since arriving, we’ve helped Fouad enrol in school for the first time in his life for the first time in his life, and he can now say and write his name. He can even have conversations with his family.

Fouad is a mischief

When we first met Fouad things weren't so good – his speech was so bad that he couldn’t even say his own name. His birth in Syria was never registered, meaning he didn’t have the documents he needed to go to school.

Today, Fouad’s family are over the moon with the huge improvement he has since shown in and out of the classroom. Like any child, he's relishing being in nursery.

He's especially enjoying learning to write and "scribble" in his notebook for the first time. 

The speed with which he's developed a routine since arriving in North Lebanon is astonishing. He's found a rhythm. He goes to the hairdressers with his dad and he has friends he can talk to and play with.

Fouad is a mischief

He's been able to do this because of support from you.

You’re givng children like Fouad a future to look forward to.

We look out for the most vulnerable children in North Lebanon, with a focus on high and medium-risk cases. This includes working closely with children separated from families, children working, and victims of violence.

As part of the project in North Lebanon, we follow up on individual cases that have been reported to our in-country teams – just like Fouad's.

We conduct regular home visits, and together with the child and their parents or guardians, create a tailored action plan to help them make their mark on the world.
