The United Nations agency for refugees and its High Commissioner Filippo Grandi went to FAID, the school for deaf children that we help since 2008. The star of this wonderful video is Mohammad, aged 7 and born at the very beginning of the Syria war. Mohammad is from Syria and he is a refugee; he lost his left hand when his house was shelled in 2014. Now he and his family live in Beirut. He is deaf and atttends FAID, where he is a very good and very diligent student.
