For children in war-torn Syria, Rami Adham is a welcome visitor. Since the beginning of the civil war, the Syrian native who lives in Finland has risked his life traveling to Syria more than two dozen times to deliver toys to children.
"I was very saddened by what was going on," Adham told NBC News. "As a Syrian, I wanted of course to do my part in helping people ... so I decided to go there myself."
According to Adham, his three-year-old daughter gave him toys before his first trip back to his homeland. From there, his charity, the Finland Syria Community Association, grew. It collects toys, sponsors orphans, and even builds schools for Syrian children.
Even with the growth of the charity, though, Adham still carries the toys himself.
