10 Year Old Burn Victim, Hadiyah in 2008
Hadiyah is a 10 year old girl who sustained second and third degree burns on her chest, arms, and face. She also developed life threatening infections which could not be adequately treated in Iraq. So the Iraqi Childrens Project helped her to come to the United States in 2008 where Boston Shriners Hospital gave her world class burn care. Within weeks, she was walking, then running, playing soccer, and enjoying life again. Her wounds healed well and she was able to return to her family in Iraq.
