A serious injury 

Ahmed is 29 years old. He is married and has two children. He was hit by a bullet outside his home. It passed through his right leg, before reaching his left leg and exploding, causing extensive damage. The young father had more than twenty operations and stayed in hospital for several months. He still needs more surgery. He spends 300 euros a month on analgesics and antibiotics, which are essential for his recovery. Unable to work, he is financially dependent on his family. 

“Very brave”

Nehad spends a lot of time sitting on the sofa in his living room. The partner mobile teams supported by HI provide him with physical and psychological support. He can move around again now thanks to the crutches provided by HI and the advice of physiotherapists. 

“He’s determined to regain his autonomy and he’s very brave. Nehad still needs to get through more operations, from which he will have to recover with rehabilitation sessions that our partners will provide with the help of HI"

explains Abedelrahman Abu Hassanien, HI Project Manager in Gaza.
