NowThis Politics shared CARE’s story of Wael, a Syrian teen refugee and athlete. When Wael came to the Azraq refugee camp in Jordan, he never thought that six years later he would be destined for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. A journey that began in a CARE-sponsored taekwondo class changed his life and is continuing to transform the lives of children in one of the most dangerous areas on the earth. See the video here
