Abdulhamid Akash  Potsdam, BB, Germany
My brother, Amr Akkash, is 11 years old; a sweet and curious boy who dreams of the day he will be able to play football. In 2013, two years after the outbreak of civil war in Syria, he fled with our parents to Turkey, where they now live under refugee status.

Mein Bruder Amr Akkash ist 11 Jahre alt; ein süßer, neugieriger Junge, der von dem Tag träumt, an dem er Fußball spielen kann. Im Jahr 2013, zwei Jahre nach dem Kriegsausbruch in Syrien, ist er mit unseren Eltern in die Türkei geflohen, wo sie jetzt den Flüchtlingsstatus haben.


He was born with a rare condition omphalocoele, where he has no abdominal wall and his major organs are spilling out into his abdominal sac. This condition is life threatening and has taken his childhood from him.

Er kam mit einem seltenen angeborenen Defekt, einer Omophalozele, zur Welt. Dieser angeborene Bauchwanddefekt führt dazu, dass lebenswichtige innere Organe in einer Membran vor der Bauchdecke hängen. Diese Krankheit ist lebensgefährlich und hat ihn seiner Kindheit beraubt.


He urgently needs to have a series of operations. Dr. Thomas Schnellbacher of Potsdam has found a hospital in Berlin Tempelhof (in Germany), St. Josef's Krankenhaus, that is prepared to carry out these operations. The hospital has kindly offered to cover the costs of the first operation.

Er braucht dringend eine Reihe von Operationen. Dr. Thomas Schnellbacher aus Potsdam hat mit dem Berliner St. Josephs Krankenhaus Kontakt aufgenommen. Dort könnten diese Operationen durchgeführt werden. Die erste der notwendigen Operationen würde von diesem Krankenhaus finanziert werden.



I myself fled from Syria last year, after being unjustly imprisoned and tortured for 18 months; the German government has graciously granted myself and my wife asylum.

Ich selbst bin letztes Jahr aus Syrien geflohen, nachdem ich 18 Monate lang ungerechter Weise im Gefängnis saß und gefoltert worden bin. Die deutsche Regierung hat mir und meiner Frau großzügiger Weise Asyl gegeben.

I, on behalf of my family, am desperate to raise the funds for the other operations that Amr needs in order to save his life. The 7500 Euros I am asking for is for the second of five potential operations that he will need.


Im Namen meiner Familie möchte ich für die anderen Operationen Spenden sammeln, damit Amrs Leben gerettet werden kann. Die 7500 Euro, um die ich bitte, sind für die zweite von fünf möglicherweise notwendigen Operationen.


Thank you in advance for your generosity and love.


Vielen Dank im Voraus für Ihre Großzügigkeit und Liebe.

Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thank you so much for your incredible generosity, it has been amazing to see how generous people have been to help save my brother's life. We have now reached enough money to pay the hospital for the second operation, so I have changed to goal to 15,000 Euros as this would pay for the third operation too. The surgeon will decide after the third operation if any further surgery will be needed. We can now start the first operation and feel confident that we will be able to raise enough funds for the following operations. I will keep you updated with any news that I have, and many thanks once again.
Best wishes,

Abdulhamid
