Syed's hopes

Syed is a Palestinian child, whose father died when he was very young. He lives with his mother, stepfather and two brothers in a dilapidated house in Burj El Barajneh camp, Lebanon. 


Syed had to leave school due to the family’s difficult financial situation, and started working as a plumber in order to cover the costs of his younger brothers’ education. Syed likes riding his bicyle and playing soccer. “I love Palestine and I wish to see Palestine free”
