Fall Appeal: Support Children in Jordan

Hisham al-Miqdad’s childhood was shattered when war came to Syria. But today, things are different. Hisham’s life has changed, and he's using some little paper shapes to do the same for others.

As students in Canada prepare to head back to school this fall, we want you to be inspired by Hisham’s story and then ask yourself whether you can give another child the same chance Hisham got — the chance to learn in a safe, supportive environment.
