Former two-division world champion Badou Jack earlier made a promise that he will help refugee kids abroad who live in camps and are enduring hard life amidst all the violence surrounding them.
Now Jack has made good on his promise as he visited the refugee kids in Baqaa Refugee Camp in Jordan last Saturday. This refugee camp is home to around 100,000 Palestinian refugees who are registered as such with the United Nations.
“I promised my friends at the Baqaa camp I would be back and was so happy to see and spend time with them again,” said Jack. “I’m truly blessed to be in a position to help these children in need. As a Muslim, my duty is to help those in need. In order to serve God, you have to serve humanity. It meant more to me than anything to see the smiles on their faces when they saw me again.”
Badou Jack also launched his education center where the kids will be taught extracurricular activities like computer skill, Boxing, vocational studies etc.
“The Badou Jack Education Center is something that I take a lot of pride in, to help these kids create a better life for themselves,” continued Jack. “My wife Yasemin visited the camp with me this trip, and we are both committed to giving these children all of the tools necessary to succeed and have a fighting chance in life.”
