Abolfazl is a first grader from Eilam. He and his brother are diagnosed with epidermolysis bullosa (EB) disease, a congenital disease that affects patients from birth. Patients with this disease have hearing and vision loss and their digestive system stops functioning. The cost of treatment is very expensive and the price of one ointment is approximately 230,000 tomans ($58).
The same wounds that are external on the body of the patient also occur internally on the organs, such as the esophagus, which makes eating and drinking difficult. Unfortunately, Abolfazl's eyes have been damaged from his illness and it is highly possible that he may become fully blind in the near future. His father is a day laborer and his mother is a homemaker. The family's other source of income, aside from the father's meager wage, is through subsidy and charity.
The family home is in a remote village, which the father has taken out a loan to build. Considering the high expenses of the children's treatment, this family is in a critical financial situation and need help.
