Baby Yousef in Syria needs our help

£15,333 of £19,000 goal

Raised by 341 people in 44 months


My name is Rohan Karat and I live in London, UK and I am running this fundraising campaign for little Yousef in Syria. Yousef is a two year old little boy who was not only terribly injured due to the ongoing war in Syria but also sadly lost his mother and 5 year old brother in the bombing of his home. Yousef has suffered 45 percent first and second degree burns and almost died in the incident. His injuries are horrific and the psychological trauma will stay with him for a long tome. We want to help Yousef get out of Syria with his father and be rehabilitated in a better place and be safe. In a place where he will deserve a child's life and a future that is promising and full of hope. We aim to raise these funds first to get him out of Syria to maybe Turkey/Lebanon and then hopefully get him to the UK/Europe and invest in his care and future.

Hello all,

Hope you are well.
A gentle reminder to please (if you are able to) support us financially in helping Yusef overcome his health challenges and live a normal life. This little guy has gone through such heart breaking tragedy in his life and could do with all the help he could possibly get.
So please give at:
https://www.gofundme.com/LittleYousef
or kindly send us a message if you want to discuss other channels of how you could give.
We are so grateful for you love towards our little Hero.

Much love

Dear loving supporters,
Hope you week has started well.
We urgently need your help to support Yusef with his health needs and to keep supporting his life. Because of previous injuries, he had a recent scare where he was massively short of breath and had to be rushed to the hospital and be put on a machine to help him breathe (as shown in the picture)
We are running low on funds and hence are appealing to you to help in anyway you can to keep supporting our little Hero.
You have all been Angels to Yusef and have transformed his life. Please do whatever you can.
In much Gratitude
The Baby Yusef's Supporters Club

YUSEF APPEAL:

Hello all loving supporters of Yusef!
Happy Easter...Hope you are enjoying the Easter weekend with your loved ones.

Yusef is on a good journey to full recovery mentally and physically but still has a little while before his body is completely healed from the tragedy that changed his and his family's life. Thank you for your constant support for him.

He still has instances where he gets itchy and painful breakouts over his body as a result of what happened to him and the subsequent treatment. As you can see in the pictures he often also gets nose bleeds and is still is on a lot of medication.

We need your help please to keep supporting his life and his road to recovery. We are running low on funds and would be grateful if you can out of the generosity of your heart give whatever you can towards Yusef's well being as we carry on supporting this amazing young man's incredible journey.

Please donate via this (Yusef's) GoFundMe Page https://www.gofundme.com/LittleYousef

Thank you tons for your love and wonderful care for Yusef. Let's keep showering our blessings on this miracle of a boy!

Much love and gratitude
The Baby Yousef's Supporters Club

Dear loving supporters,

Hope you have had a good weekend.

Wanted to give you an update on Yusef's health. Sadly Yusef still suffers consequences of the horrendous incident in Syria because of which we first came across his story. He still bleeds (as seen in the picture) a lot from his nose almost everyday as a result of which he is showing signs of Anemia. The doctors have put him on medication but the only thing that will get him perfectly better would be a surgery to sort out the damaged nerves in his nose.

The surgery comes at a cost of around £500 and it would be very helpful if you are in a position to contribute towards this cost if you could please do so.

Please donate via Yusef's GoFundMe Page https://www.gofundme.com/LittleYousef.

Let's keep supporting our little Hero in whatever way we can and help him completely recover and heal from his health challenges. Thank you for your loving hearts

Doesn't the NHS have enough problems, "no beds", operations and other treatments cancelled, staff shortages etc etc?? We don't need imported patients (who doubtless would have all stops pulkled out for them!!) Our own folk should come first, we cannot be expected to put them at the end of the queue while foreigners have priority!!!

Great to see that the money is reaching Yousef & his dad. When we first saw this on ITN it seemed there was no way to reach out and help. Thanks for making it happen Rohan

Hi Lise, thanks for getting in touch. Our immediate priority is to get Yousef out of Syria to a safe place, Turkey seems to be the most likely place. We are still working on further details of what happens once they get to Turkey and how do we get them to the UK/Europe. The below is an email I got from Amen who works for an NGO in Syria who will help with Yousef and hid father's transit out of Syria. Thanks Hello Rohan, I am very happy to be part of the team helping little Yousef. Shrean, our organisation is a non governmental, humanitarian NGO that provides aid to Syrian victims who need medical care, we've helped many of them getting out from Syria for the medical help they can't get in Syria. I am working on Yousef's case, I believe we can get him to Turkey in less than two months, and I will get back to you with more details tomorrow. Thank you for all your efforts. Kinds, Amen

Hi Shaista, Thanks for getting in touch. Yousef is fortunately being treated in Syria. The fundraising is to get him and his family out of a place where they are facing death everyday. We need $5,000 for the journey out of Syria to a safe place like Turkey or Lebanon. In addition we are raising money to help them with other necessities in Syria and also when they get to Turkey. You can follow updates on Yousef's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HelplittleYou?fref=ts Best Rohan
