Y.K. is autistic and was brought to us as a child when his mother died in front of him during the Lebanese civil war. Since that traumatic event he hasn’t spoken a word and is always fearful and anxious. He has a brother in the army. His father remarried and his step-mother, thankfully, treats him well. He likes to run and participates in our annual races. He interacts with all visitors coming to our Center from other organizations or schools.
