She-Smiled-Again

She smiled again

She smiled again after the suffering of travel and the need to surgery.

“Sahar Al-Hussein” – 7 years old – suffers from a congenital problem in the heart, which is that the ductus arteriosus remains open, which caused her many health problems, and later she required a cardiac catheterization operation to close that channel.

Sahar, who was born in Hama countryside and resides in the liberated areas, was denied from her right to treatment due to the lack of specialized centers that carry out such operations in northwestern Syria. Sahar was able to enter the Turkish territory and perform the operation at the expense of the “Al-ameen”, so that the smile returns to Sahar’s face, and the joy reigns in her family’s home again.

Sahar’s story is not the only one and it is not the first of its kind. Rather, it is one of dozens of stories produced by the noble solidarity between “Al-Ameen” for humanitarian support, and the health authorities in Turkey in general, so that human aid would be a large and illuminating title for every story.
