Just like any other little boy attending school and full of dreams and aspirations... yet Abeer's young body started to get attacked by leprosy bacteria.
It was devastating news for little Abeer and his family who have been suffering from severe poverty.
Leprosy has already inflicted lifelong harm - and now poverty is putting his chance for a cure at grave risk, because his family can't afford monthly bus fare to hospital for Abeer's leprosy treatment.
To reach the nearest Leprosy Mission hospital, Abeer's father carried Abeer on a 10km bumpy bike ride to the road, then more than 100km by bus!
Feet, back, bottom, arms - and fingers, now stiffing into the tell-tale rigid claws of advanced leprosy.
On top of his advanced leprosy, Abeer has so much bacteria in his body, that he is experiencing an unbearable inflammation called Leprosy Reaction. He is numb in so many places, yet he is also wracked with pain.
This means Abeer must return to the hospital every month to maintain his schedule to complete his full course of multi-drug therapy.
That is 12 sets of bus tickets. Leprosy becomes an extra burden on Abeer's family financially.
Today you have the power to Cure One like Abeer.
What a wonderful way to achieve a world without leprosy. One child at a time.
