BENEFITING: Patricia Fleming Foundation
EVENT DATE: Sep 04, 2015
We are a team of volunteer lawyers working with refugees in the MIddle East. We're helping people with extreme medical or mental health needs access treatment. Kadhman lost an eye during an attack in Iraq. She has a false eye that needs to be cleaned every two months. Her eye has not been cleaned in about nine months because she can't afford the fee. Her is badly infected and she is in pain. We're raising money so she may have her false eye removed and the socket of her eye cleaned. The UN and other NGOs have told Kadhmah they don't cover this service. Each cleaning is approximately $300 USD. We are trying to raise $600 for two cleanings. We will accompany her to have her eye cleaned so that we know she receives the treatment.
