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.
