(Zaman Al Wasl)- Adnan Al-Othman is a young man from Suran city, in the northern Hama countryside. He is 23 years old and lives in Suran refugee camp in the northern part of Aleppo.
Adnan has been suffering from a muscular dystrophy since he was three years old. It affected his four limbs, then extended to most of his body parts, leaving him completely and entirely disabled, unable to walk, unable to move, and unable to serve himself.
Since he was a child, Adnan has been passionate about his studies, however he couldn’t pursue his studies past the sixth grade because of the complexities of his muscle dystrophy, especially since he lost the ability to use his hands to hold a pen. Several years ago, Adnan's family were obliged to flee their home in the city of Suran, after the Assad militia had taken over the city.
Adnan consulted a number of hospitals of the north of Syria, and learned that his treatment is not available in the liberated areas , therefore he has to go to Turkey for the needed treatment of the physical therapy.
Adnan appealed, without success, to the concerned authorities and organizations to ensure him the medical travel to Turkey for the necessary treatment. Today, he still hopes that he will be ensured the medical travel for the treatment, so that he can support himself and help relieving his family’s burden.
