From the Field in Syria | A Mother’s Worst Nightmare

I met a refugee mother at the Syrian border today whose heart is breaking for her four-month-old son, Mohammed.

He’s dying.

Struggling against the cancerous tumor that has appeared on the side of his face and with no hope of proper medical care, his future looks incredibly bleak.

Can you imagine?

Little Mohammed entered a world that is collapsing with violence and chaos. His young mother is afraid . . . desperate for answers . . . desperate for help for her dying child . . . desperate for hope . . .

We cannot turn away.

Her story is another reason why we cannot afford to watch as Syria disintegrates and thousands of helpless people—innocent children—continue to suffer.

Please watch the video below and respond by providing help for Syrian refugees like Mohammed and his mother.
They are depending on us to wake up and respond with compassion. There’s no better time to help than now.
