Naba's father and brother were killed before her eyes in Iraq. They were stopped at a US checkpoint on the outskirts of Fallujah. American troops opened fire on the car. Her three-year-old brother and her father were shot in the head. Naba was hit twice, once in the arm and once in the chest. She and her mother and sister were forced to flee Iraq for Syria, where they live as refugees. A high school group in Alameda, California has joined forces with a committed community group in Mariposa; they are raising funds to support them in Syria. They are also paying for Naba's psychological treatment and surgery to repair damage to Naba's arm.
