Syria to Ireland: Journey to save a young life

11-06-2014 Feature

Abdallah and his family fled Syria due to the armed conflict in their hometown Qousseir. They entered Lebanon with nothing, not even their official documents, which turned out to be an obstacle on the path leading to Abdallah' s cancer treatment in Ireland. ICRC provided the five-year-old child and his family with the travel documents they needed to facilitate his trip to Ireland and thus put the boy on the way towards healing.
