18 months old when ISIS attacked Sinjar. This is little Khiri who is now 4 yrs old, a little innocent Yezidi boy subjected to such severe torture sustained over 2 and a half years by ISIS that they broke both his legs so he can hardly walk. They broke both arms and his nose. They bit his ear so badly he cannot hear through it, they kicked his stomach so often it is herniated and they cut his penis. Most of this in front of his mum. Arrangements are under way to fly him and his family out of Iraq for lengthy treatment to rebuild all they have hurt and broken.

He will need to have his legs re-broken to heal correctly & his ear can be improved with surgery but he will have to go though painful bone lengthening because his femur was so badly damaged that one leg is shorter than the other.
We have priced up flights (one connection) out of Iraq to Turkey then onwards with Pegasus Air for his parents & him & his two siblings. The cost is around at least £2000. We will aim for £2500 any surplus will go to the family or other Yezidi children.
