Helping refugees with special needs
By Chris Niles
SULIMANIYAH, Iraq – There are about 2,000 Syrians living in Arbat refugee camp just outside of Sulimaniyah and a few of them, like Suliman Gorgis’s family, live with disabilities.
Suliman’s oldest son, Yousef, was paralyzed at birth and his other son, Mohammed, has Down’s Syndrome. A third son, Yasser, is unable to walk properly because of a hip injury.
