SUCCESS STORIES

Syrian doctor devotes his life to serve displaced, refugees and the vulnerable...

Dr. Ihsan Ezedeen, a Syrian doctor born in Swaida governorate in 1943. After finishing his studies at Damascus University he became a Pediatrician specialist in 1968, he opened a clinic in Jaramana city. AT that time, he began to feel a new calling: “serving my community, and caring for the sick and the poor.” “I chose to take care of the vulnerable and poor people because I lived in this community and I witnessed the conditions they live in. I decided to provide an affordable service to the poor so that they are not burdened financially and I still can make a living.” “serving my community, and caring for the sick and the poor.” Dr. Ihsan Ezedeen is one of the five inspirational heroes who were short-listed for the 2017 Nansen Refugee Award but narrowly missed out on winning. Through his work, Dr. Ezedeen ensures always the dignity of people who he helps. He used to ask for very little fees for his service which is now 50 Syrian Pounds (0.1 US dollar) so that those receiving the treatment would feel that it’s a service they actually paid for and not some kind of charity. He also refuses to take any charges from those he sees they can’t afford it. These are almost 70% of his daily patients. “With the symbolic fee I receive (50 SYP) I think it is not a burden on any person. As for my income, for me (100- 150 patients daily) is sufficient income to enable me to live reasonably”, Dr. Ezedeen explained. By: Vivian Tou’meh | 6 Sep 2017

A young man’s dream comes true for the first time...

Anas is one of 1.75 million boys and girls that dropped out of school to support their families, millions of young Syrians lost their youth and years of education. Anas, originally from rural Aleppo, was displaced 6 years ago when fighting broke out in his village. He and his family moved from Deir-ez-Zor then settled in Rural Damascus, draining the family’s little savings. In Jaramana, Rural Damascus, Anas, being the eldest in his family, he found himself as the sole breadwinner. “I worked the night shift, from 7 pm to 7 am and I was always tired” He worked long hours in a plastic factory to support his family, “I worked the night shift, from 7 pm to 7 am and I was always tired”. Through the hardship, Anas kept dreaming to one day continue his education and become a carpenter. “I love the craft of carpentry; designing and producing furniture,” said Anas.

Torn-apart by the War a Displaced Woman Finds Relief...

Displacement is a journey of misery that only leaves dark memories, that is what Nijat was thinking after being displaced for about five years. Life in the crisis is a struggle but Nijat is coping with the daily challenges and never gave up hope. She is learning sewing skills and trying to find a job opportunity. But she is going through a dilemma, and feels torn apart, whether to stay in Syria and take care of her elderly parents, or leave to Germany to reunite with her husband and her younger son as a refugee. Nijat Salameh, 41 years old, a mother of three, two young girls and one boy. The displaced woman lived for years in Yarmouk camp for Palestinians, a suburb just south of Damascus until late December 2012, when the armed conflict forced Nijat and at least 140,000 people to flee their homes in Yarmouk. “We were very happy, rapidly everything changed.” By: Vivian Tou’meh | 8 Mar 2017
