When his playing career ended in 2016, Mehdi Ballouchy sought to find a way to help Syrian refugees fleeing their homes. He partnered with the Catalyst Foundation for Universal Education and started Kickstart Joy, a foundation that uses soccer to bring joy the Syrian refugees.

Jillian Sakovits joined the former MLS player and current NYCFC U15 boys coach on a trip to Amman, Jordan, where she met the people comforted by Kickstart Joy, and a few other former MLS players who have joined Mehdi's cause.
