The joy of healthcare: Melhem’s story
Together with local partners, Caritas Australia is providing vital medical care to people who are affected by poverty, natural disasters and conflict - including children like Melhem.
Three years ago, Melhem escaped from Syria to Lebanon with his family. As he fled the fighting in his hometown of Homs, he sustained a serious bullet wound to his leg.
Thanks to your support, Melhem was able to get much-needed surgery and follow-up treatment – as well as psychosocial care to work through his deep-seated trauma. Today, Melhem is able to smile again; and he is building confidence that he can create a peaceful, brighter future in his new home.
Help bring life-saving care and relief to children like Melhem, who now knows he has a future ahead of him.
