Sohad Hussam is a 4 year old Palestinian girl who lives in Palestine with her family.

She was born with Ectodermal dysplasia, a disorder in which no sweat is produced due to abnormal sweat glands. This in turn affected her immune system, and growth. She also has no feeling what so ever in her legs or hands (I am not able to find the translation for this medical term), to the point that she was injured and her hip joint dislocated and broke and now needs an artificial hip and surgery every 5-10 years to replace it. Sohad also has osteoporosis(avascular necrosis), where the bones are very weak and deteriorate and break down on their own. This has led to decay in her thigh bones and in her ankles. As well, one leg is shorter than the other and her immunity is very low that she got a bad infection when she did a surgery on her hip.

The family of Sohad Hussam need as much help as they can get as they are not well off financially. I have taken this case as my responsibility to help ensure that Sohad gets the help she needs. Our goal is to raise enough money to get her out of palestine and get the help and surgery that she needs (at least the first hip for the next 5-10 years).

No child should have to suffer this much. No child should have to go through so much pain just to walk or move, the very things we take for granted every single moment of our daily life.

We are hoping to raise $40,000 dollars and every donation will go a long way to help Sohad. Even $1 dollar from every single person will go a long way to help her. Sharing this story goes a long way to help her. Keeping her in your prayers goes a long way to help her.

Imagine if Sohad was your daughter, your sister, or even YOU as a child…
