Life for a child means movement, and, today, Ali felt that his life actually started after receiving his electric wheelchair. From now on, he will be able to leave his home and go to school, the neighborhood, and his relatives. Through your support, Ali became able to lead his independent life with self-reliance. He is extremely happy now and feels very confident.
We are pleased to share with you these valuable moments that present the first steps of Ali using his wheelchair. His hope, along with other children's, have been rekindled this month as they were supported and provided with wheelchairs. Thanks for giving them hope and energy and for bringing joy to them.
Our campaign continues to break isolation and challenge disability. We need your support to draw smiles on the faces of many other disabled children.
We relentlessly work to reach more children with special needs who are constrained in their disability. We aim to break their isolation in their tents or rooms and offer them their freedom in the form of a wheelchair that gives them hope.
Your donation and support today to the "Chairs of Hope" campaign rekindles hope for these children, end their isolation and help them lead their lives independently.
We are pleased to share with you pictures of our adorable children Aya, Yahya and Ghassan after they got a wheelchair that gives them freedom, independence and a lot of positive energy. Those three out of 10 children got wheelchairs this week.
Thank you for your support for this campaign, we are pleased to inform you that our campaign has achieved 80% of its goals, and we still have little to do to reach the campaign goal and reach more children with special needs in Northern Syria.
We hope for your support to continue offering hope in the form of a wheelchair.
After providing a hearing aid and training for her, the little girl Rasha overcomes hearing loss and its effects.
Rasha could get through hearing loss that she has been suffering from for years after she had received a hearing aid and attended a series of trainings. The little girl has just turned nine years old and has left behind feelings of anxiety, fear, and shyness. She has started a new life with possessing new skills like hearing, communication, and speech after she underwent behavior rehabilitation sessions with the protection trainers of SEMA's case management department.
Rasha today is a completely new person who has joined the list of children supported with hearing aids and behavior rehabilitation. This would not have happened without your continued support every time. We would like to warmly thank you for every success story we make with you.
Unfortunately, the list of children with partial and complete hearing loss is still long, and they impatiently wait for the moment to receive a hearing aid that would be their bridge to the school desk, and group playing with their friends. Hearing for them means a healthy childhood, which cannot be ensured with the absence of sounds. We call upon you to make more success stories and more brilliant children.
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.
