This #GivingTuesday, help a child like Fayaz stand tall.
Fayaz, 6, is a survivor. Three years ago, he and his sister, Simran, were playing close to their home in war-torn Kashmir when she found an object she thought was a ball. Simran bent down to pick it up and an explosion rang out.
That day, Fayaz lost his sister and both of his legs. When Handicap International met him, he was a heartbroken little boy, but thanks to donors like you, Fayaz and his family found hope. After receiving physical therapy and two artificial legs, he stands tall, smiles with pride, and loves to play cricket.
Your support on #GivingTuesday will change the life of a child like Fayaz. Please give now.
