Samira is a 15-year-old girl. She is one of many Yezidis who was forced to leave their homes to escape from ISIS violence. For few days she was captured on Sinjar mountain, while fights were taking place everywhere around. Her home changed to an unfinished building and later to a tent in a big refugee camp.
Before these dramatic changes occurred in her life, she started to suffer from a disease which is characterized by patches of skin losing their pigment. This condition stigmatized her life. She experienced a lot of bullying from other children, which led her to refuse to visit the school.
After displacement, her father was not able to find a job. While taking care of 5 children, he could not provide necessary therapy to his daughter.
In order to help Samira to have a life as normal as possible, 2 years ago our project started to support her. She underwent phototherapy with good results. She also uses special cream, which is expensive and she could not afford it without the financial help of you, private donors. We hope to continue our cooperation to help this sympathetic girl to have a better future.
