LA CHAÎNE DE L’ESPOIR’S CHARITY ADVERT
La Chaîne de l’Espoir has made a video, the hero of which is a young Syrian refugee living in Jordan who sustained wounds to his legs in a rocket attack.
His name is Nizar and like tens of thousands of Syrian children, he is a collateral victim of a conflict that has been raging for 5 years. As a football enthusiast, Nizar keeps playing to overcome his disability.
This short film was shot in the suburb of Amman, Jordan, where La Chaîne de l’Espoir has been taking action for 4 years and will be developing a large-scale surgery programme for children with war wounds.
At a time when the current context doesn’t give any hope of better living conditions for Syrian refugees, when football will be on everyone’s lips with Euro 2016, La Chaîne de l’Espoir wants to call attention to these children, symbols of so many misfortunes. With such physical and mental injuries, their greatest challenge is to rebuild their lives. Nizar, the goalkeeper, and his whole team are an inspiring example.
Isabelle Adjani got personally involved by generously performing the voice over for this charity advert.

Nizar, a victim of war
Nizar needs a new prosthetic limb. It is in France that La Chaîne de l’Espoir would like to fit him with a prosthesis. Nizar and children from Syria need your support: donate.
Missions in Jordan
For 4 years, La Chaîne de l’Espoir has been conducting several orthopaedic surgery missions each year to treat children victims of war. In 2016, ECHO has provided financial support to our programme.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over 4.6 million people have fled Syria since the conflict began in March 2011. 1 in 15 refugees suffers from war-related injuries. Almost 2 million Syrian children are living as refugees in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and many other countries.
