The Hard situation of Hadeel Ahmed Qaid

Hadeel’s mother says: “My daughter was born very naturally and practiced her life very naturally, until she reached the age of 5 years, and suddenly she began to lose her balance while walking, and she lost her speech as well, so she was taken to several hospitals, but her condition was not diagnosed. Suddenly the crisis began and we fled our home and my daughter’s health was neglected, as there are no open hospitals or health centers. Everything ended in Taiz, even my daughter completely lost walking and talking, and she entered a brain wave that completely complicated her life for 5 years until the beginning of 2020 There is a center for prosthetics and physiotherapy that offers free services, so I came to see what could help my daughter and here I found a surprise”.

I am very tired and do not have the costs of transportation to the center. I need 2$ a day to attend my daughter’s physiotherapy session. During the past periods, I owed money to help me get my child to be massaged, but now the situation has worsened! I see my daughter getting better, but I cannot help her. I have to get up, so I have to cry in the nights and ask God to help me in my daughter’s ordeal, especially after I saw her improving. Now I attend only twice a month, although I have to attend eight times, due to the lack of transportation costs. The specialist Rana never left me, she helps me and teach me How do I carry out exercises for my daughter at home, while I cannot attend them, specialist Rana has not felt exhausted for more than 6 consecutive months while she provides exercise service to my daughter, I am very grateful to everyone who works in this center and grateful to the King Salman Center that seeks to help the needy people in the area of ​​Taiz, thank you for the life of the center of life.”




Physiotherapy.. Renew Hope

Within the areas of war and conflict, where a person lives countless challenges that reflect one after the other on his life and on his relationship with those around him, in those areas in particular, the mobility disability becomes something like the virtual death of those afflicted with it! Disability is considered to be of unspeakable physical and psychological pain in normal circumstances, so how if your home is in a state of war, conflict, or economic collapse?

There may be many types, causes and forms of mobility disabilities, but the majority of them unite in one path of salvation and treatment, this path is the physiotherapy, so what exactly is physiotherapy? Physiotherapy is a series of therapeutic activities that are provided to individuals in order to restore movement to the normal limit, while developing and maintaining functional abilities at all levels of life that a person goes through, in addition to improving the quality of life, rehabilitation and the possibility of moving again in the natural way as possible.


Yemen and Syria

War zones were the most deserving of care in this regard, in addition to the fact that the war operations in them had physically damaged thousands of people, and resulted in them severe injuries that led to multiple mobility disabilities, so physiotherapy services within these areas had to be given utmost importance, taking into account the humanitarian conditions, and sensitive to the population whose interests, livelihoods, and even homes have been destroyed by wars.

For all this, “Al-Ameen” for humanitarian support moved to take over the responsibility of physiotherapy centers in two countries that have been devastated by wars and conflicts and are still, which are: Yemen and Syria, making their peoples vulnerable to various injuries that have produced innumerable mobility disabilities. As the “Al-Ameen” teams supervise four physiotherapy centers in Yemen in “Aden – Taiz – Saioun – Maareb” and one center in Syria in “Idlib”.

As a matter of accurate statistics, during the month of April alone, Taiz Physiotherapy Center received 109 patients, Aden Center received 86 patients, while Saioun Center received 182 patients, Maareb Center received 146 patients, and Ariha Center in Syria received 183 patients.


Physiotherapy renews Sami’s hope

Many human stories that were reported to the physiotherapy centers in Yemen and Syria, Among them, we bring today the story of the 36-year-old young man “Sami Saeed Anbar” from Republic of Yemen -Hadramout city, who is a father of three, and works in his small project in his three-wheeled bicycle to transport goods and livestock to all the people of Saioun.

Sami does not leave his lips with a smile in front of everyone who met him, whether he knows him or not. Sami suffered several years ago from a disability in his back after he had a fever that disrupted the functions of his organs, and this injury had adverse consequences in his life and the lives of those who support them, and it stopped His bike was out of work and became just junk in front of his house, and his body and the bodies of his young children were emaciated, and one of them became malnourished. Sami has repeatedly tried to treat his chronic disability, moving between hospitals in Hadramout, Maareb, Aden and Sana’a, but all of these attempts did not bear fruit.

The head of the physiotherapy association tells us: “Sami told us in sign language because he could not speak well, to go and go to the center for an examination and then to undergo a number of physical therapy sessions. A physiotherapist received him and we were surprised that 80% of Sami’s members had returned to Movement and to its functional services”.

The supervising technician tells us about Sami’s condition by saying:” Sami told us in sign language that he could not speak well, by going to the examination center, and then undergoing to a number of physical therapy sessions. After he visit to the Prosthetics and Rehabilitation Center in Seiyun, to follow up on his condition by specialists, and after organizing a treatment program for Sami for more than a year. The result was impressive, 80% of his organs have returned to the movement and to its functional services.

The head of physiotherapy association Society continues by saying: “The center’s workers have created a new friendship with Sami, who keeps mentioning the name of the technician always, because of his creation, reception and good treatment, not to mention that the center provides its services free of charge to all beneficiaries.”

Thus, Sami returned to his small project that achieves decent livelihoods for him by working on his motorbike, and will transport goods and livestock to citizens and displaced people in the city of Saioun, thus achieving qualitative self-sufficiency in his life that he thought that it had completely ended, and his conversion to the abysses of oblivion and valleys of despair.
