A dear friend of mine desperately needs to go and see her father.
2 months ago, a member of ISIS broke into her family home with an assault rifle, and started shooting. Here is her story, which may be rather upsetting:
"2 months ago I received a phone call at 2 AM. My mother had been killed by a gunman who had been shooting innocent civilians in my hometown.
He had entered my family home, in which my father, mother, brothers, sister + their children were sleeping. 4 of my brothers were seriously injured along with my 6 year old niece. She had her shoulder shot off and is now disabled for life. Whilst all of my siblings survived and were able to travel home with medical assistance, one of them was shot in his leg 4 times and is also seriously disabled by the attack.
The worst of it all, was losing my mother. She was shot in the head and died instantly.
One of my brothers has now gone to fight ISIS, and with all my siblings back in their home countries and recovering, my father is left on his own.
He cries with sadness when I speak to him on the phone, and believes my mother is calling out for him from the other side.
He needs me, and it pains me that I cannot be there. - I didn't see my mum for three years, and I am full of regret. The least I can do is be there for my father, but tickets to Iraq are very expensive, and I have children here to support, so the funds are hard to come by. I just don't want to make the same mistake again, and not see my father before it is too late. That is my biggest fear".
I decided straight away, that I wanted to help reunite my friend with her father. She is not aware that I am fundraising for her, so it will be a warm surprise for her to receive.
Please help me by helping my friend. This would mean the world to her and all money raised will, of course, go towards her travelling fees.
I have kept her anonymous for the security of herself and her family.
