Halabja, Iraq
By Antonio Zambardino
27 Mar 2013

Sheena Fathalla with help in her mother's arms. She was born blind (24 Feb 2010) She was immediatly diagnosed Hydrocephalus, a medical condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the ventricles, or cavities, of the brain, causing increased pressure inside the skull. She's unable to walk, but she might be able to have surgery at the age of 14.

On the 16th of March 1988, an Iraqi military strike hit the Kurdish town of Halabja with the greatest attack of chemical weapons ever used against a civilian population. The weapons used were a "cocktail" of mustard gas and the nerve agents sarin, tabun and VX. These chemicals drenched the skin and clothes of the targeted people, affected their respiratory tracts and eyes and contaminated their water and food.
But a generation later, the strike on Halabja is still killing people. An increasing number of children are dying each year of leukemia and lymphomas. The cancers are more frequent in children and teenagers in Halabja than elsewhere in Iraqi Kurdistan, and many people have aggressive tumors.
No chemotherapy or radiotherapy is available in this region. The attack has left thousands people wounded physiologically too. Some statues and monument in Halabja are based on the pictures taken on the day of the attack and often show dying people instead of triumphant men in a context of greatness.
The entire city carries this legacy on its shoulders.

March 11, 2013, memorial services were held for the two-year anniversary of 3.11 across northern Japan. Two years after 3.11, some things have changed but many problems remain in disaster areas. Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant that caused an serious accident is still in hazardous condition. People who used to live in No-Go-Zone have not been able to go back to their hometowns. The decontamination plan for a huge contaminated area by radiation is late. Also, home rebuilding efforts are slow. However, in such severe situation, the people do not forget to pray for the victims of 3.11.
