Operation is urgent. Please donate to help Rahaf.

Rahaf is a dear little girl 4.5 years old whose femur was broken in an airstrike in Mosul last year.  Surgery was performed some months ago and plates were inserted to help with the healing process.
It is now past time for the plates to be removed ….. Rahaf is in constant pain and cold and has been living in a tent with her family in the Hasan Sham U2 camp located 25 kms east of Mosul.

IMG_1546This week Rahaf and her mother were transported to Erbil and Rahaf was admitted to hospital for preliminary tests prior to surgery.  Costs for the surgery, pharmaceutical and food costs are USD500.  This a discounted fee negotiated by our friend Darya Mustafa.

We are currently the only organisation making any financial contributions to fund these surgeries.  Rahaf will be discharged and returned to the camp in the next few days if we cannot fund the full USD500.

Please help us to get Rahaf back on her feet as soon as possible.  Your donations will be gratefully appreciated.
