This is Dr Saussan, she is a physiotherapist that has dedicated the last years in time and study for  the sake of the boys with hemophilia in Jordan. She works a lot with a prevention look, teaching her young patients how to practise the right exercices and how to detect early a internal bleeding. I met her the first time in May in the World Hemophilia Congress in Istanbul. This picture was taken in August in the summer camp for adults with bleeding disorders in Jordan.

Esta é a Dra Saussan, que é fisioterapeuta do Hospital Militar de Jordania. Ela participa ativamente no trabalho educativo e terapeutico dos pacientes com hemofilia. Participou dos treinamentos oferecidos pela Federação Mundial de hemofilia e, seu enfoque é sobre Prevenção. Ou seja cómo preparar os meninos desde uma idade bem jovem de gostar dos excercícios fisioterápicos e praticá-los com regularidade. Ela é muito legal!


This is Omar, he is 12 years old and his mom Asia who is an active member of the hemophilia Society of Jordan. She is graduated in psychosocial area. She is very much loved by all !

Sua mãe, Asia, é a presidente da Associação dos portadores de Hemofilia de Amman. É formada em ciencias sociais. Gente dedicada e muito boa no que faz para apoioar as famílias com hemofilia. Um exemplo a ser seguido.
