Six year-old Burn Victim on the Road to Recovery

Shabana was only six years old, when in December 2010, she was severely burned by fires that caught her small house in the remote, rural village of Chasahe, Khyber Pakhtunwa.  To make matters worst, rising flood waters forced Shabana and her adoptive family of parents and eleven siblings to move into a tent camp in Hisara.  Still, Shabana is a lucky little girl. Her family cared about her and brought her to the attention of SHINE Humanity's medical team in Charsadda, KPK.

Five surgeries later, and Shabana is on the road to recovery. She still needs plastic surgery. SHINE Humanity (with the help of its implementing partner CDRS) is making arrangements for her treatment at Al Safia International Hospital in Islamabad, Pakistan.  We wish Shabana and her family all the best.
