Your money could help children like Youssef
14-year-old Youssef was playing with his friends in Syria when a missile exploded next to him.
He suffered terrible injuries to his right leg. Sadly, surgeons had to amputate it to save his life. In an instant, the young boy lost all hope of ever playing football again.
But thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Youssef was fitted with an artificial leg and he is now using football as a great rehabilitation exercise.
When he first tried kicking a ball, Youssef’s new leg may have flown off, but he has since made amazing progress! He says: “I thought it was hopeless, that I would never play football again. Now I’m eager to play.”
