RAF Scots help disabled Iraq boy with new wheelchair - Daily Record

BIG-HEARTED RAF Regiment Scots have helped a disabled boy from a poverty-stricken village in Iraq.
Rashash Muslim al Hemdani, 12, had to be carried around by his family.

But now he has a motorised wheelchair thanks to RAF Lossiemouth's 51 squadron - who are based in Basra - and All Mobility Highlands, of Elgin, Moray.

The chair was presented by Squadron CO James Lennie and his deputy, Flight Lieutenant John Rees, who said: "It's a great opportunity to improve the life of a young Iraqi."
