Appeals to Help Iraqi Refugees in Jordan

Uthman, a Double Amputee, Needs Surgery Urgently

leave a comment »

These days, Uthman is bleeding again from where his legs were severed by a militia attack. He does not even have enough money for an X-ray examination before his operation, which he needs urgently. We had not known that, but he finally called us to ask for assistance. We have asked Doctors Without Borders to perform his operation for free. At the same time, he has been searching for any job to earn money, even though he is missing both legs and one hand. I was in tears. We helped get Uthman an X-ray examination and contacted Doctors Without Borders through the health section of UNHCR. Uthamn has not received cash assistance from UNHCR yet. It’s so hard for such a family as his. Absolutely it’s not possible to work.
