Funds update

Today’s activities:
-Hope Café Rent paid for June.

– £500 paid towards the container leaving Northwich on Saturday to Lesvos/ Chios.

– £200 sent for a mother and her son (her son had been tortured by ISIS) and they have nothing after escaping which is buying food, cooking stove and clothing. (I will post a full post on this as its the first Yezidi case on the ground we have helped) – but I will do it later as no time now.

-Khiri appeal – they have their passports yes and waiting the final nod to book flights to evacuate them from Iraq to life changing surgery. We raised over £1700 so any funds will go to them in destination country If needed or to other Yezidi cases in Iraq.

– All funds in from all groups to buy 2000 sunhats for Lesvos/ Chios (shared 50/50) so waiting official headed quote to pay it over. and will post up a big thanks to all groups involved 🙂 great group effort.

– All items including TV ready for new Syrian family coming in few days. You’ve all been amazingly generous.

Hope for Khiri – tortured by ISIS for over 2 years

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.

Update on the appeal for Baraa

To everyone who gave to Baraa’s appeal, the little boy who lost his mum and baby brother in a tent fire in a refugee camp. Akeel has been to visit him and his dad today. We’ve raised over £600 towards the £5000 that worldcare raised and they will need ongoing to support him and his dad for at least couple years to come. Imagine going from a full family living a normal life to this. It’s why all our groups are so important because they find the people who aren’t getting help and help them

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
