STORIES OF HOPE

  • Rokaya, COWF’s second candidate, was in desperate need of surgical attention that she was unable to receive in her home country of Egypt. COWF learned of Rokaya’s condition through contacts at Operation Smile, and both organizations spent months working to bring Rokaya to the United States to receive the treatment she needed. Accompanied by her father, Tamer, Rokaya spent almost two months in Southern California and underwent treatment at CHLA. Rokaya’s procedures were successfully completed, and she and her father were able to return to their home country of Egypt in December 2011.

  • 2 year old Ana Paula is from rural Panama, she was born a conjoined twin and seperated at 20 days of life. Unfortunately Ana Paula's twin did not survive, the operation left Ana Paula with major medical complications. After months of trying to locate surgeons and a hospital that could do the rare operation that Ana Paula needed, Children of War Foundation was contacted to help. COWF teamed up with Shriners Hospital for Children Los Angeles to transform Ana Paula's life. Today, Ana Paula is walking and she'll continue to progress as we anticipate her return to Los Angeles for further medical attention.

  • Hashim sustained a devastating head injury in his hometown of Baghdad in February 2010 from a nearby blast. He was pulled from his family’s car and remained in the hospital for seventy days after the blast. In late August 2010, several weeks after learning about Hashim, COWF and MKI teamed up and managed to bring him and his mother to Los Angeles, via Jordan. Hashim began receiving his surgical treatments at CHLA in September 2010, and we’re happy to report that Hashim was finally reunited with his family in April 2011!
