How a Girl Scout from Syria is giving back.
Today Haya lives with her mother and siblings in Los Angeles, but she doesn’t forget where she came from, and she’s decided to do something to help.
“What I’m doing doesn’t change the conflict in Syria, but it does change the people who are being affected by it.”
As a Girl Scout, she began the “Rise Again” project, which today is a non-profit that helps Syrians “rise again,” by donating prosthetics for children and young people who have been injured as a result of the war.
“Each person has their own world, so we’re changing that person’s world when we’re helping them,” she said. “Every small thing matters, and we all have the power to make a change.”
