“Daddy, Pick Me Up!” Child Loses Legs in Barrel Bomb Attack

childA recent barrel bombing on Idlib made yet another young Syrian child into a victim. This time, young as Abdulbasit Taan Al-Satouf lost both of his legs.

His plight has gotten worldwide attention, as video footage captured the aftermath of the bombing, as the child cries out for his father, “Daddy, pick me up!”

Tens of thousands of children just like Abdulbasit have lost arms, legs, or both as a result of the conflict in Syria. Palmyra Relief is working to help these children get prosthetic limbs as a start toward rebuilding lives that have been upended as a result of the war.

Please help us help the children

 

5-Year Old Mahmoud Needs Your Help to Get a New Arm

15241401_1550177575069781_6016252056858991677_nThis is Mahmoud. He’s five years old.

He lived in Aleppo, Syria.

He lost his arm in Aleppo, in the bombing that is a tragic part of Syria’s ongoing conflict.

An arm is not all Mahmoud lost. This precious little boy is also an orphan.

Palmyra Relief wants to give Mahmoud a reason to hope, and help him have a better childhood, by helping him get a prosthetic arm.

Every pound or dollar helps.

Please help us help Mahmoud by donating whatever you can…
