An autism center in Kirkuk needs everything
In the heart of the oil-rich city of Kirkuk, an autism center, named Reden organization, inaugurated in a rented house in May 2015. Frmesk, a main manager of the center, is the heart of this initiative, which now embraces 37 children, all of them diagnosed with autism.
Frmesk, who is acting as a mother of each of these kids, emphasized that, without too much help from authorities, she has been fighting to get help to these lovely children. In the center, there are 12 female workers, helping the kids as a volunteer or just for a symbolic salary.
When BHHF visited the center in February, we immediately realized that the center, under any circumstances, lacks the basic standard that the place be used as an autism center. We saw that the kids are in need of everything. In less than 48h, BHHF provided the kids with high quality clothes, brought from Germany, baby shampoos, toys, and blankets. BHHF will try to provide these kids, and also the workers, with all their needs in as soon as possible.
Since the location of the center is lower than surrounding, the place is subjected to flood. In a heavy rainy day in December 2015, the level of the water raised by almost 1m in only some few hours, which destroyed everything that they had collected. A local business man has denoted 1000sqm land to Miss Frmesk, for building a new center. BHHF struggle to raise capital for accomplish this project.
