Mohammad and Hope Back

Years of war have left Syria in a detonated state. High levels of explosive contamination are continuing to significantly rise, which corresponds to the increased number of special needs people in Syria. According to the World Health Organization, there are 30,000 people injured every month and 1.5 million people living with permanent disabilities in Syria.

Muhammad, 3, was born with severe sensory hearing impairment and lived his first years of life unable to speak or hear. Unfortunately, he was displaced to Kafr Karmin with his parents and younger sister.

SRD’s protection team found Muhammad’s case and started him on the shelter rehabilitation project. The case management team soon learned that his family was suffering from financial hardship and could not afford the hearing aids needed for Muhammad. A specialist helped select hearing aids and began Muhammad on the procedure. Muhammad’s family was taught how to properly care for his new headphones.

Muhammad became irritated the first time he used the headphones because it was strange and new to him. After a few follow-ups, Muhammad showed positive results.

“For the first time, he uttered the word baba and the whole family rejoiced” said Muhammad’s dad.
