Lack of funds for Syria's disabled children

Syrian refugee children in Jordan suffering with autism are struggling from a lack of access to funding and treatment.

    Syrian refugees who have fled the war to neighbouring Jordan have access to a variety of health services. But that does not include special treatment and schooling for children with autism.

    Some children are getting worse without the proper care.
