ABDULMALIK

….. the continuing story of dear little Abdulmalik, the boy who was caught in an airstrike in Mosul last year.  He suffered horrific injuries and needed an extensive operation to realign his wrist and lower arm.  This surgery occured in December 2017 and we have just had word that the follow up surgery by a plastic surgeon has been successful.

Funding of both operations for Abdulmalik was possible due to donations to the Operation Hope ‘Christmas Appeal’.

Thank you for giving the gift of hope to this little boy.  He will return to the camp near Mosul for his recovery.

Our kind thanks to Darya Mustafa for his help in organising and ensuring both operations were performed by specialists in Erbil.  Darya also organised the transport from the camp into the hospital on many occasions for assessment, surgery, pre – operation testing and checkups.   This work was done in his own time and often funded from his own pocket – thank you for your dedication to the well being of these people.
