My Story

 

This is Yasri. He is 10 years old and currently in 4th grade.  He most enjoys math and English, as well as seeing his friends.  He also likes playing with his friends at school. After school, Yasri enjoys playing puzzle games. He would like to be a doctor or pilot in the future.

Yasri has severe hemophilia A. The family travels 5km by public transportation to the hospital for treatment when needed.  Yasri would benefit from physiotherapy, but the physiotherapy center is far away and it is too expensive for the family.

Yasri lives at home with his parents, brother and two sisters. His father works as an auto mechanic to support the family and earns about $130 a month.

 

 

Your sponsorship funds would help to pay for Yasri’s living expenses as well as any transportation costs associated with hospital visits.
