Helping Youssif

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Five-year-old Youssif is scarred for life, his once beautiful smile turned into a grotesquely disfigured face -- the face of a horrifying act by masked men. They grabbed him on a January day outside his central Baghdad home, doused him with gas and set him ablaze.

No aid organizations have taken up Youssif's cause at this point. CNN and will keep you updated if this changes. Please spread the word.

UPDATE: Awra Damon, the CNN author has promised to put a donation link for help. Keep checking back here:

Also, Shriner's Burns Hospital is also aware of Youssif's situation.
