You just need few moments with Youssef (12 years) to realize that his great hopes and sense of humour give him enough power to conquer the most severe diseases. His nice words and energetic moves draw a smile on everyone’s face during an activity carried out by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent for children with cancer in Daraa.
“Despite his pains and suffering, he has never given up. Despair has found no way to his heart or laughter or dreams, which will come true absolutely” said his mother. Youssef is fond of football and does not miss the opportunity to play with his friends or to watch ‘Captain Majid’ that inspired him to achieve what he wants no matter. He wants to overcome his illness and become a famous player such as the beloved star to his heart ‘Lionel Messi’, so the Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers gave him football to play around with his friends, as well as gifts and other games.
