Day to day Americans are among the most philanthropically minded and generous people on earth.

Please click here to watch the story of an American soldier who worked very hard to help a little Iraqi boy who was in dire need of help: the child was born without an anus, and had major difficulties.

Rescuing Youssif who was burnt alive by masked men in Iraq


Youssif was grabbed by masked men outside his Baghdad home on January 15, doused with gasoline and set on fire. CNN.com users, the Children’s Burn Foundation and the Grossman Burn Center helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to get him and his family out of Iraq for the treatment he needs.

He first arrived in September with his mother, father and little sister, Ayaa. Earlier this month Youssif underwent his most extensive surgery that removed his biggest scars.
At Balboa Park, Youssif’s father squats next to him at the edge of the water, cracking his first tired smile of the day at Youssif’s antics and never-ending energy. When he’s not feeding ducks, Youssif runs around kicking a soccer ball.
