One of the Barbarians, Marwan Aleid, severely broke his right leg last Sunday in the IFFC league game against Forbidden City FC (5-4 Barbars victory). Due to the severity of the injury he had to undergo emergency surgery to set the leg straight by inserting a metal pin. While the operation was a success and he is slowly starting to recover, he remains in the hospital with a high fever.
For those of you who don't know Marwan, he is a young Syrian lad (17 years old) whose family are all over in Syria. He came to Beijing to escape the recent unrest in his home country and is still in high school here.
Unfortunately he does not have insurance, and therefore the Barbarian family is organizing a series of fundraising events to help cover his medical costs, which are well in excess of 50,000 RMB. We need your help and would appreciate donations.
