VIDEO: There's a petition to bring Syrian child refugee Moussa, who could lose his sight, to Ireland

Moussa's story is one of the more heartbreaking videos you'll see.

Channel 4's Unreported World have shared the story of Moussa, a Syrian boy who could go blind if he doesn't receive urgent surgery.

Moussa, who has already lost the sight in one of his eyes, and his family fled the Syrian civil war but can not afford to pay for treatment in Lebanon where they're currently living as refugees.

In this moving video, Moussa voices his dream of coming to Ireland with his family.

"This little boy needs urgent medical care which Ireland can provide, and he does not have time to waste," writes Jennifer Moroney-Ward, who has started this petition to bring Moussa and his family to this country.

Moroney-Ward explains more about the circumstances surrounding this particular Syrian family.

"They have already lost their home and live in horrific conditions in Lebanon where medical services are completely stretched.

"They are approved for resettlement but have not been offered a safe haven so far. This little boy needs urgent medical care which Ireland can provide, and he does not have time to waste.

"We have the capacity to sponsor this family and many of us are willing to do what we can financially, socially, emotionally to support this boy's family to get to Ireland. Let's make this happen for Moussa and start the important conversation about refugee family sponsorship in Ireland."
