Wardell, a 12-year-old Syrian refugee who attended a 3-day soccer clinic in Kurdistan hosted by World Compassion and More Than A Game, told us, “In the last three days I forgot why I was here. I forgot I was a refugee.”
The love Wardell experienced through our team allowed him to open the door of his heart to hope. Even if only for a few days, his heart was not troubled. He no longer saw himself as a victim of violence, loneliness or hunger. As you can see in the video, he was soaring – laughing, making friends, and enjoying life.
This clinic, made possible by World Compassion partners, could change the trajectory of Wardell’s life forever. He told us his dream is to become a doctor, and when we asked him why, he told us – “to heal my country and heal my people.” The love of Christ has empowered this young boy to see himself differently through the lens of hope.
