On January 8, 2019 I was visiting Somalia for the first time when I was in a car bombing. The bomb was placed right under my seat and I was the only person injured. After the bomb went off, I woke up and looked down at my legs and I saw that I was bleeding and injured, I looked around at the car and I knew it was going to catch fire and blow up again, I needed to get myself out of there, so I dragged myself as far as I could. I saved my life. I thought the hard part was over until they told me the prosthetic is going to be 60 to 80 thousand. I cannot come up with this money, so I'm coming to you and asking for help. Whatever you can donate will help in making a difference.
My name is Abdirahman Ali, Grade 12 high school student. I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta.
