Meeting Syrian refugees life-changing for SBW

As a sportsman, Sonny Bill Williams has done it all – he’s won Rugby World Cups and League Premierships and even held a heavyweight boxing title.

But as a husband and a new father, he describes his trip to Lebanon to meet Syrian refugees as life-changing.

He says his reason for being there is selfish, because understanding the plight of Syria's refugees might make him a better person, but it is hard to imagine anything more selfless.

Williams visited a safe zone provided by UNICEF where more than 400 children can access basic schooling and medical and psychosocial support.

He is there as a Goodwill Ambassador for aid agency UNICEF and Story was there with him.
