My name is Terrero Paniagua my dad from Spain and my mom from Dominica Republic. I have 3 wonderful kids who gives me joy everyday.
On the 19th of August 2017 I travelled to Turkey on a business trip, stayed at holiday inns in Istanbul a place called Mecidikoy. 5 meters from the hotel was a young girl looking so frail and malnourished, she was holding a tissue paper and asking for help. I gave her 5 Turkish lira i had with me. The excitement in her face drew me closer to her, at this point i began to ask her some questions, my heart could not hold back tears when i heard her story. She is a victim of war in Syria her Mother died in the war she escaped with her father to Turkey her father has no job. They are about 1 Million Syrian refugees in Turkey, with women and children topping the list of refugees. Halima and her sibling Maumood are Victims of war. I was led to where Halima and other refugees numbering over 500 lives and all i saw was illness,suffering and malnutrition.
Halima was raped by group of boys that promised her assistance she followed them to a dark spot where she was raped and STI transffered to her she is lucky to be HIV free. The Turkish government has done well in allowing the refugess to Turkey but children are exploited and child labour is imminent. Halima was a brillant student in Syria and she has stopped schooling cause her mother is late and her dad hardly get ends meet from helping shoppers move their goods to a nearby metro station.
She has been diagnosed of Brain Tumor and has been infected with STI (Sexual Transmitted Infection). The treatement of Halima will cost $67,000 she will recover fully in 6 Months after sugery and the STI will be a thing of the past. Halima and other children will be sent to school, I and my family will raise funds to send 100 Syrian refugees back to school in Turkey. Those between the ages of 5 and 12 will be enrolled in various schools in the country and we plan to float a Foundation that will ensure these children complete their education.
Halima is 12 years old, my daughter Uriel is 11 years old i cant imagine my daughter in the shoes of Halima, Help save Halima her situation has gone bad she hardly can stand, because of the excrutiating pains she get from her illness. Turkish Government does not have an exclusive medical benefits for refugees children and those whose mother are dead suffers more in the refugees camps more than what they have suffered in Syria. Halima has been booked for surgery on the 20th of September 2017, shehas been given lots of pain relieve medicine and Vitamins that will boost her immune for the surgery i have spent $3670 for Halima and other sick refugees.
help Halima and other sick children in Turkey live again.
