Heshiar is a five years old lively boy from Tel Qasab. When ISIS took over his hometow in 2014 he, his sister and his mother managed to escape with a car of a relative to Sharia, a village near Duhok. His dad was separated from them and remained in Sinjar mountain to fight ISIS, but luckily he then managed to walk to the Syrian border and save himself.
The family was reunited after three months and moved to the IDPs camp of Dawoodia. A new baby sister was brought to life in 2017 and the five of them now share a small but clean caravan.
Heshiar’s father used to be a police man and Heashiar’s grandfather was a cook for the army. This allowed the family to have save some money for the first years after their displacement. This was an extremely fortunate circumstance because Heshiar is affected by Cryptorchidism for which he needs to take a chronic medication. Considering this drug costs around 100$ per month, the family soon finished all saving and started borrowing from a sister of Heshair’s mother.
We decided to support Heshiar to undergo an operation (orchiopexy) that can help solve the problem in the long-term. This surgery costed 300000 IQD (270$) and we were able to cover the price thank to your donations!
