Abdul Raman lived in a refugee camp in Syria after bombings destroyed his home. The bombing also took his lower legs and killed his mother and brother. Abdul had to adjust to this new life without his family and without the ability to walk. Heart to Heart International was able to ease Abdul’s journey with a simple, life-changing device: a wheelchair. Abdul received one of the wheelchairs from a shipment of humanitarian aid delivered to Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Relief to Orient for Human Relief.
On the last day treating patients in Honduras during the 2020 response to Hurricane Eta/Iota, HHI’s volunteer OB/GYN Dr. Stone diagnosed a woman with severe preeclampsia. The patient was transferred immediately to the hospital, more than an hour and a half away, to have her baby that same day. Without the diagnosis, this could have been life-threatening for both the mother and baby.
Peter, 53 and a father of two, cut his leg while cleaning up from Hurricane Michael in Florida in 2018. The wound became infected and caused him enormous pain. The Heart to Heart International medical team was set up with the Mobile Medical Unit and had the supplies and expertise to clean and treat his wound and provide medicines for the infection. Peter’s wife, Jelliot, was thankful to have found the HHI medical team. “It was impossible to find a doctor—we are so grateful for Heart to Heart,” Jelliot said.
