UK Care for Children - A child from Lebanon's Beqaa Valley - Wants to be a Doctor

Hakim lives in a refugee camp in Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley.

His donor has provided him with a vital financial lifeline for years, helping him to go to school and helping his family to afford basic every items.

“When I grow up, I want to be a doctor and help others.

I want to thank my sponsor for helping my family and for enabling me to go to school so that I can fulfill my dreams, insha’Allah.

May Allah bless you and reward you for your ongoing help. It warms my heart that someone is helping me.”

We support over 2000 sponsored children across Lebanon and Jordan’s refugee camps every year.
