The Physiotherapy Center in the Turkish refugee camp "Suleiman Shah" works on restoring hope to many war casualties in Syria, where a new beginning was written for many of them with the help of some volunteers working at the center for free.
"Yousef" is a refugee child in the "Suleiman Shah" camp in southern Turkey, he was wounded in his hand due to the bombardment of his city "Muhasan" in Deir al-Zour countryside -northeastern Syria- and he lost hope to move them again, but the workers in the Physiotherapy center managed to treat his injury and draw a smile on his face.
Yousef says: "After my injury, I and my family were displaced to Turkey, and opening this center in the camp saved a lot of time and effort for us, where the alternative solution was to travel to the city of Urfa in order to be treated, and that would be a very tedious journey. And my health situation became better since I have started my treatment in the center."
According to the director of the center of "Saddam Allawi": The Treatment Center was established in the camp in early 2013, by the efforts of young Syrian young men who provided the center with some medical and sporting equipment. Expert volunteers work in the center and oversee the treatment of more than forty cases from various military casualties a day, especially children with permanent disabilities.
With very simple potential, the volunteers in the center insist to providing even a bit of help and assistance to their patients, as the volunteer "Mahmoud Shawakh" explains.
"We are keen do our best to treat the injured at the center, and compensate them for the harm they have suffered, and most of the injured who are being treated at the center are soldiers affiliated with the Free Syrian Army." Confirms Shawakh.
For "Rabi’", who is a journalist is of Deir Al-Zour, he was seriously injured during doing his job, and was unable to get the proper treatment in his city, especially after "ISIS" control on the city, so he was forced to flee to Turkey to "Suleiman Shah" camp, where he found the Physiotherapy as a savior for him, and according to him, his injury began to improve from the first day of the treatment at the center.
