Photo Story: The Little Tailor with Big Dreams

 

 

Story Behind the Photo

‘I want to be a tailor,’ said Bashar. Sheltering in an unfinished building in the western parts of Aleppo city, a 12-year-old boy with Down’s syndrome, Bashar is working on the clothes for his dolls. As a disabled child, Bashar is definitely demonstrating his unique talent in terms of sewing and design, by using torn rags and fabrics skillfully. Violent conflicts in Syria caused various challenges on Bashar and his family, such as the death of his father, wars and displacement. With the regular cash assistance from UNICEF, Bashar’s family can afford their cost of living, and send him for education. The family received extra support for a child with special needs, thus, supporting Bashar’s dream of becoming a tailor.
