Girl Shot By Taliban Gets Help

December 22, 2012 by  

Girl Shot By Taliban Gets Help, A 6-year-old girl — shot and left for dead by the Taliban in Afghanistan earlier this year — received free reconstructive surgery at a hospital in the U.S. Friday.

“She’s OK. All is good, thank God!” said Elissa Montanti of the Global Medical Relief Fund.

The nonprofit children’s organization, based on Staten Island, helped bring Marizeh to the U.S. after the attack that cost the girl her right eye.

Taliban fighters ambushed Marizeh’s family as they drove home in a remote, unidentified region of Afghanistan last spring, said Montanti.

Her father tried to hide the girl under his feet inside the family car but she was shot in the face, after watching both her father and brother murdered.
