Review for Solace for the Children, Mooresville, NC, USA
My Life in Solace____________________________________
I was first introduced to Solace for the Children Organization in 2009 by my uncle. He gave the address of Solace in Kabul. Dad and I came to Kabul for the registration. We gave them all the information about my illness which was needed. After that they told us, we are going send this application to the United States of America and we will call you about it.
Two months letter they called and said “Ashrafullah has been accepted to go to the USA for medical treatment.” Well I went to the USA Jacksonville Florida in 2010 in 28th of May first time. I met Dr. Loveless, who was my orthopedic doctor. He checked my leg and said “I will meet him next year. His surgery will take some time.”
I came back to Afghanistan and wanted started school again. I figured out that I was dropped, so I start 6th grade from the beginning for the second time.
Well in March 2011 I went back to the USA and had my very first surgery that year, and it took four months. After that I had another surgery which also took four months too. I went to hospital and the doctor told me “You can go now back to your country, and you are going to come again to see the result of the operations.” This time I stayed for 11 months and after all those surgeries I returned back.
When I came to Afghanistan, I was dropped again in school. I also could not make to go to school that year, because I had pain in my left leg. The school was an hour far from our home.
Well in 2012 I went to the USA for the third time, in order to see how I have changed. The result was positive. The doctor said “I want to see him again to do one more surgery on his left foot to be straight.”
Before I back to the USA, in school they gave my promise and said “We will not drop you again and you can start from where you lift.” But the broke their promise. I was dropped for the third time, so for three years I had not study.
In 2013 Omar Ehrari call to my dad’s cell phone and I talked with him. He told “Do you want to study here Kabul?” I was very glad when say that. Bay the way I agreed and came to Peace House. Fortunately start my lessons in a private school. Now I am so proud to be given the chance to study here in Kabul. I learned a lot here in Peace House.
Except studying in Peace House I am also a volunteer for three years. I am helping other students of Peace House with their lessons especially with English. I had Cloths Drive to help the poor people with warm cloths, which lives in tents. Blood Drive and gave my blood and flowers and fruits. I had school drive and distribute school supplies for the students and some tents to study in it.
