testimonies from on the ground
Meet Khaldiye, mother of 5 from Hamouriye, Eastern Ghouta. Khaldiye and her family currently live in Atareb camp, after fleeing intense bombardment in her hometown only 2 months ago.
Her family is dependent solely on humanitarian assistance, as her children are too young to work and her husband unable to do so either.
Meet Ghada, a mother of 4 originally originally from Haran Al-Awameed, Rural Damascus. Ghada and her family were displaced to Maarat Al-Nouman, Idlib only two months ago due to the incessant airstrikes and bombardment. Since displacements, the family’s living situation has been extremely difficult as her husband has not been able to find work. They are having trouble meeting the most basic needs for their children.
When asked about the impact of Karam’s Ramadan project, Zeinab told Karam staff:
Meet Roza, originally from Sanjar, Idlib, she and her 6 children were displaced only 2 months ago. Her husband was killed in the conflict and so she is left to hold the family together on her own.
When our staff respectfully asked to hear her story, tears streamed down Roza’s face. She explained that her children are too young to work. Roza told Karam staff:
