SYRIAN FATHER AND SON NEED URGENT MEDICAL CARE.
"This fire didn't burn our bodies only, it burnt my soul after losing my wife and the other son and now I'm disabled and my son is orphaned."
Ahmed left for Idlib with his wife, Alaa and two sons, Bara'a and Kasem in November 2015 after ISIS attacked their city, HOMS in Syria.
On 3rd January 2017 came the terrifying moment a heater explodes in the family's tent, leaving all family members with serious burns and injuries. Ahmed recalls the incident, "When my wife was trying to fill the camp heater with kerosene, it exploded and the tent immediately caught fire engulfing all the family members including my wife, Alaa, both children and me while we were still inside.
" The family had to be evacuated to Turkey for URGENT medical care in a public hospital. Sadly, during ongoing treatment Bara'a lost his mother on 6 January and younger brother, Kasem on 15 January, just last month. The father and son continue recovering at a public hospital. They need your support.
The family does not have any monetary support from anyone for nappies, clothes, food, medication, rent and transportation.
