FLASH FUNDRAISER – HELP FAISAL TO WALK

Image may contain: 6 people, people sitting, baby and child

CAN YOU HELP A 6 Year Old Boy to walk?
FLASH FUNDRAISER. Target £400 ($500) to help 6 year old boy Faisal walk. HE CANNOT MOVE ALONE WITHOUT IT.
Young Faisal has a disability affecting his feet. A group of volunteers have arranged all investigations at SAMs (Syrian American Medical Society) which have already been paid for. He has had physio but doctors confirm he needs an operation.
He has some speech problems which therapy is being sorted for. BUT HE NEEDS THIS OPERTAION ON HIS WORST AFFECTED FOOT.

Here is their story from his Mum:
“We were living beside Raqqa City Airport, there are a lot of barrels and bombing, I scared about losing my children, there were clashes between the regime army and free army. So i left my town and escaped to Lebanon in 2013. My neighbours told me that my house was destroyed but fortunately i am in Lebanon with my family. the father is gone they do not see him anymore”.

I have been speaking to Stefanie Ziervogl on this case. they need also funds to help him afterwards so we have agreed that we will try and fund half the operation so they can use some funds for food and rent too.

Please please help us to help him. We are waiting confirmation of surgery date.

UPDATE ON BARA’A

Just an update on Bara’a the little boy who lost his mum and brother when a heater accident resulted in their tent being engulfed in flames in the refugee camp.
Led by Worldcare Foundation and solidarity of groups raised funds for them. We are grateful for donors who raised £600 towards the total they raised of £5610.
His wounds on his hands have healed, he may need further surgeries. The Worldcare team coordinate with those over there and have helped with day to day stuff for them and support including rent on somewhere for them to live and try and recuperate.
Thanks so much for helping to help him xx

URGENT HELP NEEDED!

URGENT appeal for funds

fbe6f069-5799-4437-99a2-35241ce3405c_1488194653664
This appeal is being headed up by Worldcare foundation which is the new name for Edinburgh cares headed up by Akeel Umar (just so you recognise who it is)

This little boy fled ISIS with mum, dad and brother. Heater exploded in refugee camp and Mum and brother died.

He is severely burned. Worldcare’s far reach means they can help him get the treatment he needs.

Please donate to them or to us (we can send them a lump sum if easier.)

If donating to us use the reference ‘Baraa burns case’ as I will be sending funds direct to Worldcare this evening.
