Thanks to the work of the Polish Medical Mission and the collaboration between the Balsam Mediorg and the Turkish Red Crescent, Maya was transported to Istanbul where she is having her prostheses fitted. The funds raised by the PMM will support Maya’s process of rehabilitation.
Maya is 7 years old. She was born with deformed legs that were amputated above the knees when she was still a baby so that she might be able to walk on stumps and then using prostheses in the future. Maya never received any prostheses; her family could not afford them. Maya Marhi comes from an extremely poor family, she lives in a tent in the country. Our partner in Syria is in touch with the Turkish organisation concerning possible aid to the child’s family.
We thank everybody who supported our collection for the girl, especially the organisers of the Week for Syria!
