I cannot stop thinking about fahad.

Fahad was my patient. 21 years old, he had just beat canser.

I was so proud of him.

Fahad needed to have all his teeth pulled out.

Every single one.

21 and toothless.

But he had a sense of humor.

The first time i met fahad, I gave him his post exraction instructions written on a paper.

He looked up at me and told me he cant read.

And neither can his friend who was with him all the time.

You see fahad is bedoon. He has no nationality. And it kuwait apparently it means your not classified as human.

He had no nationality so he had no right to an education.

and that just broke my heart.

there are many fahads out there lilasaf.

And i want to do something about it.

I want to take it upon myself to teach fahad how to read and write.

Iv spent months asking around and researching how i can go about doing that.

Its been the hardest task iv ever set my mind to.

Everywhere i turns there seems to be an even bigger obstacle waiting for me.

Ill tell u guys more about it later.

Something has to be done.

21 and can't read @_@

I don't know what fact is sadder than the next... the fact that he had cancer at an early age, or that he is losing all his teeth... or that he cannot read :`(

How come he got medical treatment? Are they eligible? wella they have to pay?!

w3liya :`( it's so unfair :(

:) u r such a sweet person..this is what I was talking about few days bk..we have problems that need to be solved..i wud certainly wish things wud change around here!

July 12, 2010 at 12:52 AM  

omg eshda3wa...i was speaking about this whole 'bedoon' topic with my dad yesterday. i swear 2u, even talking about them brought tears 2 my eyes. i felt so angry at kuwaitis...i mean there are the few like yourself that do care...but i believe the majority are so blind to this matter because they're living their comfortable lives.

I made a promise 2 myself that i will do something to change this..only god knows how strongly i feel about this. This country thinks they are moving forward by buliding as many malls as they can...but we're only going backwards!!
eshda3wa im in kuwait at the moment, but it's a shame i don't live here because god knows how much i would loved 2 somehow help u out or even start some charity or organisation.. i mean if there's nothing out there, u should start something..

Ya36ech alf 3afya o eb mezan 7asantech enshallah!
I hope it all works out <3!

July 12, 2010 at 4:15 AM  

wow.. never knew there are people like that!!

where is civilization people!!

July 12, 2010 at 8:02 AM  

thank you
i need all the support i can get

you know the fact he got sick and lost all his teeth is sad, bs its no ones fault. ele katbah lah allah.

Bs the fact that he cant read. Thats OUR fault!

his medical treatment is a looong story.

we have to take the initiative to change them ourselves.

there are many many charities and organizations to help the bedoon.
But there should be more.
There are always people that slip thru the cracks.

thank u

lilasaf fahad is just one of thousands

الله يجزيكي الخير

It's truly sad to live in the 21th century and yet we face people who have no human rights, even the most basic ones like education.

People like Fahad, who's life always against him and yet he has a sense of humour, I really appreciate them.

An American guy met a 40 years old 'bidoon' man in Kuwait, the Bidoon shocks him with the fact that he's actually not Kuwaiti, the American asks him, what are you then? I'm Bidoon, 3'air mu7adad iljensiya, my kids sing Wa6ani Al Kuwait, and they're not even Kuwaitis. The American asks, where were you born then? What's your home country? The Bidoon replies, I was born in kuwait, my dad was born in kuwait, and my brother died for Kuwait during the war. The American asks, you lived your entire life in Kuwait, and so did your father, and so will your kids, yet, it's not official country, and yet, you can't get out of it, you are not treated as Kuwaiti, not as a Syrian living in Kuwait, you're being treated as an unknown person. (he wanted to say a dog, but he remembered that dogs can have passports.)
The Bidoon answered: Yes.
The American hushed, he was too embarrassed to say that to The Americans, Arabs and the Bidoon are 7asharat. No More.

no offense..

قرأتُ بوستك وتأثرت بما دونته هنا
فهد وغيره الكثير يصدمون بـ واقع لا ا فرذتب لهم فيه حيث لا تعليم مجاني لا وصحة مجانية حتى الفرص الوظيفية
إذا كيف يعيشون؟

أصبتِ بقولك ... المرض ابتلاء يصيبنا
أجمعين وليس أمامنا سوى الصبر
وتعميق الإيمان بالله عز وجل ولكن ماذا عن عدم القراءة؟
هل الأمية موجودة هنا؟ نعم .. رحم الله عباده برحمته

تملكين روحا طيبة وقلبا عطوفا
ومبادرتك في مساعدته تفصح عن قمة أخلاقك

باختصار أنتِ رائعة

دمتِ لمن تحبي

thank u so much

Allah y7afthah Inshalla o thats why they call us "THE THIRD RETARDATE WORLD" in the west cuz we don't have the simplest rights like human rights

July 14, 2010 at 7:38 PM  

you can start helping him by actually teaching him to how to write and read. or pay for an arabic teacher to do so. illiterate and 21 is just sad.

July 15, 2010 at 10:19 AM  

I'm very interested in helping illiterate people to read.
if you find any place that does that please let us know. I'm sure many people would like to help as well

July 16, 2010 at 10:56 PM  

Heloo eshda3wa;
Ouh that is so tragedy and it’s a good gesture that you have had tried to help him.
Regardless of the straggles he is passing through but he is still patient and have the sense of humor sub7an Allah!
May Allah help him and bless you :)

Alah ekoon fee 3oona!

Its very sad but very true, we have had the bidoon issue and should have been solved! They should give them the opportunity at least to help themselves, not leave them with no way to educate themselves or move forward!

Alah eshafee inshalla!

July 31, 2010 at 5:10 PM  

Can you update us on this issue and what has been done to help Fahad please?
