Ayham’s mother was boiling water in the kitchen of the house they live in as refugees. Her son crawled in and accidentally knocked it over himself. His shoulders were badly burnt. He was only eight months old at the time.
His parents rushed Ayham to the hospital, where they spent over $5,000 on treating him. However, the young boy, who is now three years old, is still suffering from the effects of these burns. “Ever since he has struggled to move his shoulders,” his parents explained to us. His parents wish they had the money to pay for further treatment for their son, but they are struggling financially as refugees living in Lebanon.
Ayham’s parents were introduced to INARA by UNHCR. Our newest doctor at the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) advised that Ayham will need CO2 laser sessions to soften the burn scars on his shoulders. This should restore mobility to them, ensuring he can live a healthy life, free of a debilitating disability.
“We really hope that this treatment will have a positive impact on Ayham physically and also mentally,” his parents told us. Your donations will ensure that he gets the treatment he so desperately needs and deserves.
