The NGO Yamuna works with the objective of improving the living conditions and the future expectations of the marginal children population. In Madagascar, the NGO’s Mandrosoa Educational Center welcomes children who live in very precarious situations and can’t count on the support of their family.

Today we are going to explain a story about Omar, a Syrian child of 8 years old that has a body like a 5 years child that, thanks to all the people that have made a donation to UNHCR to help Syrian refugees, smiles again.
Over 2 years ago, while Omar was playing with his sisters in the street a rocket reached their home in Syria. From there and from the moment in which someone killed his uncle, Omar and his family fled to Lebanon searching a better life.
As we have said before, Omar is 8 years old but his body is like a body of a child of 5 years. That’s because he was born with a rare growth-hormone deficiency that causes him different disorders in his physical development. In Syria, Omar received a treatment for grow but since he is living in Lebanon his family haven’t been able to afford the treatment.
Omar can’t grow without continuous hormone and vitamin treatment, but his parents try to give him healthy food to help him. According to them, Omar needs a treatment of 4 or 5 years to reach puberty.
Before this situation, at the end of June, UNHCR suggested that his case was studied to carry him and his family to a European country where Omar could have access to the treatment he needs and he could fulfill his dream: “be as high as the ceiling”.
Today we are glad to announce that thanks to all the people that have made a donation to the projects for refugees or have made a direct donation to UNHCR, Omar smiles again because he will be able to travel to Finland to continue with his treatment.
“My family and I will be leaving, so I get treatment” –Omar says.
For parents of Omar, this lack of treatment is what most affects them, it killed and destroyed them. It sets them back years and lose all the things they had gotten.
“And you know how children hit me now? First, I will grow up. Second, when I am big, I will defend myself” – Omar explains to UNHCR people.
UNHCR has explained all the story of Omar and his family in two videos. You can see the videos in the following links:
With examples like Omar, you can see that the impact of your donations is awesome. For this reason, we encourage you to continue making your donations every time you make a purchase online as there are many people who still need your help to improve their situation.
