Alaa, a young and ambitious 19 year old working his shift, forced to work long hours to help support his family did not stop him from smiling. Everyone who knows Alaa will tell you the same. Unfortunately he didn't make it home that night.
On the 9th of December 2018, only weeks away from Christmas, Alaa was tragically hit by an oncoming vehicle travelling the opposite direction to the traffic in his lane, knocking Alaa off his scooter and severely injuring his face. Alaa, has several bones in his face broken, his jaw and cheekbones are shattered and require metal plates to uphold his face in one piece, plastic surgery is also required reconstruct his face together.
Alaa is my cousin, is dear to me and many others. Alaa is full of positivity and life, to see him go through so much pain makes us very sad.
As I write this, Doctors have begun performing a seven hour operation and require the medical expenses to be paid upon completion. Our total expenses are $21000, we have already paid $2000.
Someone once said that even a smile can be considered as a form of charity, if you can not contribute please SHARE Alaa's story and help him smile again! Every dollar goes a long way...
