Dr. Irum Tahir, a chiropractor who was part of our ServeSyria Medical Mission, shared an incredible story of transformation and healing. Meet Yahya, a young man who suffered from incontinence, uncontrollable anger, and severe spinal issues for eight years. “This is Yahya. He has had incontinence for 8 years and uncontrollable anger and aggression. Daily. He had such sadness in his face when we first saw him. He looked exhausted and was slumped over while I talked to him. No light in his eyes at all. He was referred to me by one of the other doctors. His sacrum and pelvis were completely locked and felt like palpating concrete. His whole spine was so bad. He had bad scoliosis also and a twist in the pelvic bones. He also had a reversed cervical curve and muscle spasms in the neck. No wonder he was so angry. I adjusted him and asked him to come back again after 3 hours for a second adjustment. It was honestly like switching on a light. He was so happy and vibrant. After the second adjustment he jumped on to the table with excitement. Everything moved so much better. He said I feel so much better. Huge smile. So we were hugging him... This is our why. Yahya.”Capture the essence of the blessed month of Dhul Hijjah by extending your generosity today. Your donation not only supports those in need but also contributes to the beautiful narratives of hope and resilience.
