NIDHAL's SMILE FILE
Name: Nidhal Hassan Ali Ma'an
Location: Karbala, Iraq
- Orphan child living with father in slums of Najaf. Can not attend school due to disfigurement. Family is of low socio economic status and father is unemployed. Can not afford treatment outside Iraq.
- Cranial nerve disorders. Birth deformity: Facial tumour
occupying right half of face. Partial blindness. Learning Difficulties.
Nidhal's case is heart breaking, the reconstructive surgery she requires is not available in Iraq. If you are a maxillo-facial surgeon or health professional and think you can help please contact us immediately. In the meantime we are sponsoring Nidhal to help with her ongoing costs of living with this severe medical condition in Iraq.
To see with the eyes of another, to hear with the ears of another,
to feel with the heart of another. This seems to me an admissible definition of what we call social feeling and caring. Only when we put ourselves in Nidhal's shoes can we even begin to comprehend.~Assil Russell
