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 are now trying to support Heshiar especially because there seems to be a operation (orchiopexy) that could help him more in the long-term. This surgery costs 200000 IQD (170$) so any small donation can already be useful to help Heshiar grow healthier and stronger.

Support for: orchiopexy

Amount needed: 170 $
