Walking into a refugee camp is like walking into a desperately overcrowded slum. Many houses are about to collapse, and most people needing care are not able to access hospital treatment. Those most seriously ill die.
Giving women and children new lives and hope in such situations is critical. Lack of access to health care means that there are high rates of deformity, disability, and mortality.
Remas Al Ali, 4, lost her hair and many doctors told her family that it will no longer grow again.
Remas family visited a pediatric clinic supported by SEMA US and started their therapy journey with Dr. Akram. He set a long term therapy plan after he did a clinical evaluation for her.
Three months later, the hair started to gradually grow again, and today the girl’s hair grows completely. Thanks to the accuracy and humanitarian treatment that the clinic offers for its patients.
