But when asked how they were, the father of the children, Abukushlif Samir (24), and his mother, Fendiye Seyid (47), break into huge smiles. “It is a little bit better here than the rest of the States. This is the first time we have seen the Red Cross and a Red Cross doctor. The baby has a cold and a sore throat. And she gave the other girl medicine for fever and diarrhea,” Samir says.
