ZAID, SANAD, NADA
CITY OF ORIGIN: HOMS
LENGTH OF DISPLACEMENT: 10 MONTHS
STATUS: DISABLED FATHER + EXTREME POVERTY
OUR FAMILY: ZAID (13), SANAD (9), NADA (4)
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
UPDATE - JANUARY 2017: "This semester, we got our exam results back. We both did extremely well, finishing at the top of our classes. My favorite class so far is Turkish. I'm glad because it isn't a hard class. Sanad's favorite class is Arabic and he is very good at it. We are lucky to both have best friends at school who we can play with and rely on." -Love, Zaid
UPDATE - APRIL 2017: “I love my Arabic teacher! She let’s me sit in the front desk and treats us all like her children. I also love my English class and I always get good grades in English. In class I sit next to my friend Khaled.” – Ibrahim
UPDATE - OCTOBER 2017: “Our father was able to find a job in another city, Kirkhan, so we all had to move out of Reyhanli. Our experience with Karam Foundation was great and unforgettable. We’re proud for being one of the kids sponsored by their program.” – Zaid
