HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sunshine girl Noor!!!
My hero, my absolute inspiration and my beautiful friend…you deserve to have had the best day ever today. I wish I could be there to party with you tonight!!!
Noor is Syrian but she lives in Turkey.
She left Syria after a bomb went off in her uni whilst she was sitting her final year law exam.
She hasn’t been able to walk since.
She left Syria with her mum and brother in search of the treatment she needs…but nearly three years later she is still in Turkey with minimal access to healthcare, while her condition only worsens.
But she has never given up, and always tells me,
“I know I will walk again.
In my dreams I never see myself in a wheelchair…I see myself walking.”
That is why she is my hero!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NOOR!
