    Helping one resident of Za'atari move around the camp

    Day 141

    Moving Freely

    Living with a disability anywhere has complications. In Zaatari Refugee Camp, it’s especially hard for those who can’t get around easily. We helped solve that problem today for Ahmad.

    Before, his siblings would carry him when he needed to get around. Because it was difficult to bring him outside, soon they also stopped going out.

    “I always felt it was my fault that I couldn’t give his siblings enough space to be kids for their brother who needs extra care,” said Ahmad’s mom.

    When we arrived today with the wheelchair for Ahmad, his mother was speechless.

    “Thank you so much for providing me with a chair that can help me take Ahmad outside!”

    Ahmad’s youngest brother was also moved, telling him that things would be easier now. This wheelchair is life-changing for Ahmad and his family!
