ZAID, SANAD, NADA

CITY OF ORIGIN: HOMS

LENGTH OF DISPLACEMENT: 10 MONTHS

STATUS: DISABLED FATHER + EXTREME POVERTY

OUR FAMILY:  ZAID (12), SANAD (8), NADA (3)

OUR STORY:  

We left Homs last year due to extreme food scarcity and the violence. Our father injured his leg and is unable to find work. Our mother stays at home to take care of him and our younger sister, Nada. We have never attended school, and have worked odd jobs instead. Often, we sell gum and tissues on street corners to help support our family. Since the Karam Team visited our home last month, we no longer work to support our family and we look forward to starting school.

UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2016: "This summer we played a lot at home. Sanad never wanted to go anywhere! Which made me sad since I love the park but it’s okay. We are all excited to start school because we want to be successful and lead good lives. We are excited to make friends and to study. We are really excited to learn how to read, especially Zaid. We will not miss the summer because we are so happy to be starting school." - Nada
