Nice to meet you! My name is Firaz. I'm a Syrian living in Turkey.
I suffered an attack by extremists in Syria and got injured my leg. I still need physical therapy to heal.
Currently, I'm living in Turkey.
6 years ago, when I was at college, a group of extremists attacked the school and fired the students. I got hurt on legs and hands.
Many students lost their life during the attack.
Fortunately, I was able to go to Turkey as refugee and there I received treatment free of charge. I've received surgery 3 times so far.
As I've explained I've receive surgery thanks to Turkish government.
However, surgery is not enough and to be able to heal and use my leg normally I should do physical therapy, that is not possible to be held in a public hospital.
Currently I can't have a normal life working and hanging out with friends because my mobility is not good.
I even have to miss class, and I can't practice sport. It's really hard not being able to completely heal.
I'm studying Chemistry at University, here in Turkey. I'm living with other college mates.
Turkish government is helping me to pay the 75% of tuition fee, and also my dad is supporting as much as he can in my daily life expenses.
I should do physical therapy during one year to get better, but my family can't afford more expenses.
If I don't receive the treatment I will need always help to walk, so this is really important for me.
I would be eternally greatful if you can help me raise $1,300 to pay the physical therapy and finally heal.
If I can get enough support, I will start the treatment as soon as possible.
I will go to the cheapest private hospital I have found in Istambul and I will do my best to get better. I will need to go very frequently to receive the therapy (a couple of times per week during the first months).
When I graduate, I would like to find a job in Turkey.
I won't forget the incident that happened to me but with physical therapy I would be able to walk normally again and life will be better!
