“Half of his body was on fire in an instant”

Last April, Baraa caugt fire and now suffers from burns over half of his body. Since then, the 9-year-old boy has been recovering from his injuries in Qayyarah hospital (south of Mosul), where he receives rehabilitation care from one of Handicap International’s physiotherapists.
