During playtime, one of Save the Children's Education Community Liaisons would see Nada by herself, with no friends to play with. But her fierce determination and intellectual drive gave her the upper hand over her physical limitations.
With support from her education liaison in collaboration with her teachers, Nada soon attracted new friends. She also worked hard to catch up on the years of school she’d missed out on.
Her mother is not surprised. She recognised early on that her daughter was “an exceptionally smart girl.”
In her most recent exams, Nada got an A for her favourite subject, Geography and a B overall. ‘’In Geography we learn about the environment, nature and countries. We study about Lebanon too,” Nada says proudly. “Eventually, I want to be a doctor to treat people like me. That’s my goal.’’
Thanks to our generous supporters, Save the Children is on the ground in Syria and throughout the region, including working in refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon.
