In February 2017, Hossam and his family fled the fighting in Mosul and took refuge in Qayyarah displaced people’s camp. A few weeks later, Hossam had an accident that left him with a broken leg. He is being treated in Hamdaniya hospital, where Handicap International is providing him with physiotherapy care.
