Please Help Save Bijar's Eyesight!

“Hi, my name is Bijar, I am 26, and I am going blind. The good news is that my condition is treatable (Keratoconus), but requires surgery (Cornea transplant) in a different country. I live in Northern Iraq, but must travel to Beirut, Lebanon for surgery and care. There is a surgeon who has accepted my case, but I need to raise $10,000 USD to cover the costs. I am unable to work right now, so I am asking for your help. Please help me save my eye-sight and my future!  This site has been set up by a friend I worked with in Iraq last year, Harry Mathis.  He will receive all funds to his bank account in the US, then forward them by bank wire transfer to a church in Beirut, Lebanon that has agreed to host me and manage all of my medical care during my treatment.
