A campaign has been recently launched at GoFundMe website aiming to provide rehabilitation for a 17-year-old Palestinian, Hassan Mizher from Deheisheh refugee camp, who was shot in the neck while waiting for the school bus.


The gunshot, which took place during an Israeli raid on the amp in January, caused Mizher a severe spinal cord injury and paraplegia.


Due to the lack of emergency response infrastructure as a result of the Israeli imposed military occupation and restrictions of movement within the West Bank, Hassan was rushed to the hospital by car rather than ambulance, local camp residents personally delivering him to the ICU.


Initially received by the ICU at Hussein Hospital in Bethlehem, the staff determined that Hassan had been shot in the 9th spinal disc, with a special bullet type that expands upon impact, thus aggravating the injuries that Hassan sustained.


Realizing his critical condition, Hassan was then sent to Mizan Hospital in Hebron, where a former high conflict zone specialist performed a bullet extraction surgery, noting the unusual nature of the bullet and the severity of the injury that Hassan had sustained.


The campaign goal is to reach €4,000 which will be used for a 4-week visit to a rehabilitation center outside of Frankfurt, Germany, where he will receive expert medical opinions, rehab for his mid-to-lower body in order to return functions for excretion and movement therapy.


Additional expenses include transport, plane tickets and visa expenses.
