Jordan Leila

An IOCC program provided glasses, occupational therapy, and more to Leila, who is now happier and more independent. Every day, your gifts help so many like her make a fresh start.

For three decades—with your support—IOCC has had the privilege of helping people all over the world.

We’re honored that you’ve trusted IOCC as a careful and thoughtful steward of your gifts. Thank you for creating brighter tomorrows for people like Leila.

Born in Irbid, Jordan, to a family who fled Syria, Leila was diagnosed with Down’s syndrome at birth and soon developed cerebral palsy and a heart defect. Through an IOCC program, Leila received occupational therapy and special education—and her specialists discovered she also had a visual impairment. While Leila awaits surgery to correct this, IOCC provided Leila with glasses. Her mother and specialists were stunned by her progress.

“She stopped crying all the time,” Bahyah said. “She became more social and started playing with other kids. I never imagined that she would be able to walk free without needing me to carry her in a stroller.” Today, at age 7, Leila’s journey is far from over, but she and her family have new hope.

Help someone like Leila make a fresh start today.
