HelpDad Fund Medical Refugee Needs!

$5,425 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 58 people in 33 months
Hello! My name is Shaadi Ghorbani and I am twelve years old.

I am raising money for my dad and his colleagues to help fund refugees' medical needs, transportation to large hospitals, and surgical resources. Every year, hundreds, if not thousands, of refugees perish because there is not enough money to pay for their medical fees, even if there is a very good professional doctor near them. It's not just terminal illness either. Many refugees go blind by perfectly preventable illnesses, but do not have enough to have surgery done. It's not just the fact that the refugees cannot afford it either, it's also that many refugee camp clinics do not have adequate supplies for helping diagnose or cure somebody of an illness. My dad saw a clinic that didn't even have a functioning blood pressuring monitor, and that's just the tip of the iceberg! Another issue is, in order for a refugee to, say, get an MRI scan, another doctor has to write a  letter  for the specific refugee to visit the larger, farther away, hospital. And then, who is supposed to pay for the transportation and medical needs? None other than the refugees themselves. This is why we are also raising money on transportation needs.

I should also include that the donation money is not going towards the airport or hotel fees for my dad and his colleagues, so you don't have to worry about your money going towards first class seating, five star hotels, and other unnecessary expenses like that.  

We need your help now more than ever, as we have the highest amounts of refugees ever recorded, at about 65.3 million, which means we have many to help. Although donating to this fund will probably help a fraction of refugees compared to the large number above, we will still change lives together, and just the price of tomorrow's tea or coffee can give a child who has been blind all his life, sight.

We will need all donations by January 7th as my dad will leave early January, and I will make sure to post updates whenever possible!

Lastly, I would like to add how much this means to my family, the refugees, the refugees' families, and more: A LOT! By donating, you will change many people's lives, and not a cent of your money will go to anything other than medical supplies, medicine, transportation, or medical fees for refugees.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day!

Dear all,
We are over halfway there! We can do this. As of the time I am writing this, we have 5,185 dollars, enough to change many's lives, thanks to your contributions!
As some of you know, we have several people in line for life-changing eye surgery, and have yet to purchase medicine for the refugees (We will do that as my father comes near Zaatari). Thank you all again for your support and donations,
