I’m writing this appeal with a deep sense of injustice and a very heavy heart. Since when was it okay to expect young children to undergo such hardship whilst fighting for their survival and that of their entire family?

Sometimes this world seems way too brutal a place, particularly when we know that there are thousands of children who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in a similar situation.

This afternoon I received the following message from Nour in Lebanon.  It is my fervent hope that with your support we will be  able to help this family improve their situation. Over to you Nour:Today, a young girl named Gory appeared at our school gates, offering biscuits for sale. With a heavy heart, she confided in me that she was just nine years old and unable to read or write. Her words struck a chord, revealing a glimpse of the hardships she endured.

Determined to help, I paid a visit to Gory’s home and spoke with her mother, urging her to cease sending Gory out alone into the unforgiving streets. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, we swiftly enrolled Gory in our school’s upcoming classes, offering her a glimmer of hope for a brighter future.

Gory’s gentle nature and the haunting stories reflected in her eyes spoke volumes about her experiences of suffering and displacement. With her father incapacitated by illness and a large family to support, Gory shoulders the responsibility of providing bread and medication by venturing out each day to sell biscuits.

In the face of adversity, Gory’s resilience shines through, reminding us of the strength found within the most vulnerable among us. Her story serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of compassion and the transformative power of education in shaping lives and breaking the cycle of poverty.

Gory’s narrative represents just one among the myriad accounts of syrian refugee children .
