Fadi was not born like that. He used to walk like normal children but after he was infected with haemophilia, he became exposed to any injury, which gets complicated no matter how small it is. One of the injuries that he got was when he fell on his knee, after which the injury worsened leading to constraining his movement and then affecting his joint. Afterwards, he underwent a surgery, but a medical error occurred, and he consequently lost the ability to walk, and a new suffering started in the child's life.
Even though Fadi adapted to his new condition, he always faced a great difficulty in walking using crutches until he received a wheelchair from the Syrian Expatriate Medical Association (SEMA), when he became less dependent, and he could move more freely wherever he wished.
Your continued support offers hundreds of wheelchairs to disabled children in north of Syria every year. Let's expand the circle of hope and give more wheelchairs for children with disabilities.
This week for SEMA was not an ordinary one at all. Thanks to your support, we handed over 25 wheelchairs to children with special needs, his life turned into a palette full of color and life after they were deprived of their normal lives for years, and their joy certainly passed to their parents.
Thank you for your donations to this campaign. With every chair we hand over to a child, we ask Allah for reward you for your generosity. Our joy with the children and their families cannot be matched by mere thanks. We are really grateful and happy for your response.
Unfortunately, the list of children with special needs is still long; we hope that your continued support will allow us to provide more wheelchairs for them.
The child, Ola, receives a Chair of Hope and begins her journey to the future with firm and determined steps. Her overwhelming feelings of joy and freedom are indescribable as she can now enroll in the school and move freely. From today, Ola can lead her independent life.
The Chair of Hope has given them unlimited options to move around, and it has brought them out of their isolation into a wider world, thanks to your support and belief in their right to equal opportunity to play, live and learn like their peers.
We would like to thank you for your contribution, which provided wheelchairs for dozens of children with disabilities in northern Syria.
Unfortunately, the waiting list is still long, and there are many children waiting to receive chairs of hope. Let's make their dreams come true.
Ahmad’s mother says that her son was born with hearing loss, which accompanied the child during his early years until she learned about the Aamal Center for Child Protection. Then, the child was registered and followed up by one of the center’s case managers, and a solid plan was developed to enable him to discover sounds and distinguish them in preparation for pronunciation. We have secured a hearing aid for the child, and with the cooperation from the parents' side with the trainers, we could save a lot of time. Thus, after a short period of time, Ahmad was able to form groups of words, start pronunciation, and enjoy the sense of hearing.
We thank you for your inspiring donation and we look forward to reaching and rehabilitating more children.
