The Lebanese army always makes us proud by protecting our precious country! This time, Lebanese soldiers put a smile on our faces by making a kid’s dream come true! Recently, the Minister of National Defense Yacoub Sarraf welcomed the kid Mouhdi Kachakech in an unprecedented way. It was always his dream to become an officer in the army. Little Mouhdi was formally welcomed by Lebanese soldiers in the ministry, just like any high ranking official.
turned Mouhdi’s dream into reality by organizing him a visit to the Lebanese Ministry of National Defense. Next, Mouhdi wore the military uniform and headed towards the monument of the Lebanese martyrs where he disposed a wreath of flowers. Also, he got the unique opportunity to visit the military centers including the naval base. In addition to that, he met the commander of the Navy. At the end of this visit, he promised that he will join the Lebanese army as soon as he heals! Mouhdi needs a bone marrow transplant. However, his parents are not able to cover the costs. The first step towards healing costs USD 40,000 $.He needs to be treated at Saint Jude Children’s Cancer Center as soon as possible. We cannot wait for Mouhdi to feel better and make Lebanon proud!
