A devastating video of a Syrian boy who lost his eyesight due to war has gone viral.
The boy’s name is Abdul Moeen al-Hassan. As he wakes for the first time without his eyes, he panics with fear.
His father tries to comfort him and reassure him as best as he can, but he is helpless in this situation.
Abdul Moeen’s father hardly expresses any emotion at all which is even more devastating as he tries to remain strong for his son.
Most video posts make mention of an airstrike, but it is believed to have been a landmine that caused the boy to lose his sight.
Either way, these are not things a child should be experiencing in their lifetime, let a lone the loss of their eyes.
Many people expressed their desire to help the child and bring some ease to his suffering.
A charity were able to get in touch with the father and will be meeting him to help his son recover and regain some sense of his childhood again.
They will help restore part of the boy’s sight as much as they can to help improve his quality of life after this horrific incident.
UPDATE: Abdul Moeen is going to be treated for his eyesight soon.
Abdul Moeen is doing okay. He is staying at a hospital in Turkey.
