- [Announder] Amar, a young Muslim woman
suffered from severe burns when her home
in Syria was hit by a missile.
- My mother was making French fries
when the missile hit our house.
The hot oil from the fryingpan poured all over me.
At that moment, I said to myself
this is it, I'm going to die.
- [Announcer] The rest of Amar's family
survived the blast unscathed,
but she had no access to a hospital
capable of treating her extensive
third degree burns.
She received basic careat a field hospital
and then she and her family fled Syria
for Jordan, crossing the desert by foot.
- I was in so much pain.
My wounds were not treated well.
And I had no medicine for relief.
In Jordan, a doctor volunteered
to help me.
He performed 22 surgeries,but he had to leave Jordan
and I was left without treatment.
- [Announcer] Then Amar found out about
a medical clinic supported by CBN.
- The clinic helped me find a doctor
who performed the last four surgeries
and now I'm doing laser treatments.
Thank God I'm better now.
- [Announcer] Suhael manages the clinic.
- CBN does things out of love.
When we first opened the clinic,
we could only see 10 to15 patients each day.
Now with the help we receive from CBN,
sometimes we see more than 150 patients
in one day.
- I just wanted to give up,
but people here gave me hope.
You stood by me and helped me get through
the hardest time of my life.
- [Announcer] Through the love and care
she received from so many Christians,
Amar prayed and gave her life to Christ.
- She suffered a lot physically.
Her whole body was burned,
but God is working on her heart.
- They even offered me a job
and now I'm working at the clinic
and helping other refugees.
I thank CBN for all the help you gave me
and so many other refugees.
