Better days for the future
Ghaith and his family fled Syria at the height of the brutal war in 2013. He witnessed things no child ever should, such as shelling, and his uncle and four cousins being murdered.
He is now part of Save the Children and The Arsenal Foundation’s Coaching for Life program in the refugee camp, where football coaching sessions support his mental, emotional and physical well-being.
When asked how to help children in Ukraine, Ghaith has this to say.
“We should provide them (refugees from Ukraine) with help, such as Save the Children, that changes the lives of children, and promises children better days in the future.
