Ten years ago, at only 25 years-old, Mazen had a car crash that cost him his mobility. He had thirteen surgeries so far but he is still unable to move by himself and needs to take 16 tablets of medicines every day. Today, Mazen is still in the same situation, waiting for his mother all day, alone at home, unable to carry out basic necessities by himself. Samira, his mother, took it upon herself to pay for the medical cares but she was quickly overwhelmed by the bills. After her call for solidarity on television, Kunhadi contacted her decided to help Mazen.

With your donations, Kunhadi will provide Mazen with an electric wheelchair, necessary medicines and a tablet connected to internet.
