Shrapnel Takes its Toll

Shrapnel as a noun is defined as fragments of a bomb, shell, or other object thrown out by an explosion. Saif Isam Abd knows this all too well. An engineering graduate from Mosul, he was on Jazira street in Mosul when ISIS exploded a bomb to stop the Iraqi Army from advancing to Saif street on 11 February 2017. At age 29, shrapnel suddenly hit him and lodged in his head, it effected his left side and on 19 February 2017 he was taken to Erbil Hospital for an operation. He lapsed into a coma. He was taken back to surgery where he was stabilized. However, his condition deteriorated and a third surgery was necessary. Saif is now paralyzed on his left side and is blind. This young man, a rising and hopeful engineer, a graduate from school with his whole life ahead of him, now wonders why it has all been taken from him. He wanted a stable job, a means to help his family survive this awful war and provide an income so they may have food for their table. Now Saif wonders how his family will survive and how they will have enough to eat. To aid Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation continue to help those most in need, see bringhope.info
