Farshid: on the road to recovery

Farshid has reported that his foot is feeling better and he is not in so much pain. Thank you so much for all your prayers.

Please continue to pray for the ongoing healing of his foot.

Farshid's foot was broken during the brutal 'Black Thursday' attack on the prisoners of ward 350, Evin prison, on 17 April 2014.  Farshid was left for days without treatment, then eventually taken to hospital where his foot was bandaged on Easter Sunday.  On that occasion, he was told he would need to return soon for an operation, but for subsequent weeks he was denied any medical attention and refused permission to return to the hospital.  When he finally was allowed to visit the hospital in mid-May, he was informed that, from a medical point of view, it would no longer be advisable to operate. He was returned to prison with his foot bandaged and is now waiting for his foot to heal naturally.
