I am extremely upset. I have just been reading up on all the events in Syria as I am so very concerned that this will lead to WW3. However I was in tears over this particular story

It is bad enough losing your home and everything you valued so much. But to flee a war and in doing so lose your hearing aid is just doubly horrendous. I broke down in tears reading this story. I know exactly what it is like not to have your hearing aid. I wear hearing aids myself and I also fear how I would cope if I lost mine. Sure I could get mine replaced in oh a week tops. A week is bad enough. I would have to take a week off work as I could simply not interact at work. But this boy will be without his for I would say several months at least unless his story prompts swift action to help him.

If I had the money I would pay for the boy to have replacement hearing aids at once. But I don't. Instead I hope that my monthly donations to the Red Cross and the UN will help fund the cost of helping children like this boy.

I don't think I can write anymore. I am just too disgusted and upset at the moment.

Making this post public as I did my last post on Syria as this is too important an issue not to share.
