Pictured above are Mayyar (13) and Mo (14). They are Palestinian brothers who’ve grown up in a refugee settlement in Lebanon. Divorce led to a broken family, so their grandmother raised them. They have not seen their mother for nine years and their father for ten.

They have not seen their mother for nine years and their father for ten. Both their parents have remarried, settled down with new families, and now live far away in Germany and Jordan.

To cope with their struggles, Mayyar and Mo have taught themselves to breakdance. It gives them an escape from the harsh reality they face every day. It distracts them from missing their parents.


“I am afraid to die before I see my mother,” says Mayyar.


No child should be made to feel alone. No child should have to try to escape their reality. Please pray that these brothers will one day be reunited with their parents.
