Lebanon: 'I want to be a doctor so I can help other kids like me'

20 June 2016

Mohammad was 6-years-old when he became a refugee. At 8, he was badly burned in accident. 


Mohammad's family couldn't afford to pay his hospital fees, so he was transferred to our care at the Weapon Traumatology Training Centre in Lebanon. He dreams of one day being able to leave the hospital and return home to Syria.

Since 2014, the Weapon Traumatology Training Centre has been providing reconstructive and emergency surgery, physical rehabilitation, and psychosocial support free of charge to all those in need.
