Families in January
The Mohamed Abou Chaar family
Mohamed was living with his wife and three children (3 1/2 year-old twins and a 5 year-old child) in an apartment in Haydariya, a suburb of Aleppo where Mohamed worked in a food store.
This suburb was severely damaged during the hostilities and Mohamed's family was forced to leave the home they occupied and find temporary shelter in a warehouse outside of Aleppo. The support given by Coup de Pouce will enable this family to be housed in better conditions.
The Um Ammar family
Um Ammar is an elderly woman who has had 10 children. She was living with her family in Kafr Batna, a place she and her husband have now left together with five of the children. In addition, two of the children have left Syria and her husband has suffered a stroke which has left him hemiplegic.
Um Ammar and her husband now live in Damascus in the suburb of Halbouni with one of her sons and his family. The son has no work due to the hostilities.
Furthermore, four of Um Ammar's children who stayed with their families in Kafr Batna also require assistance to meet their daily needs.
The Rime Moussa family
Rime was living with her husband and child in Hamidieh, a suburb of Homs which has been almost completely destroyed. This family had to flee this suburb and find refuge in a village named Rabah. Rime's husband is working as a driver for a drink delivery company and she is working as a part-time teacher due to the upheaval of the school system. 25 days ago Rime gave birth and the family needs support in order to cope with their situation.
The Walid Al Masri family
Before the war, Walid was living with his family at Daraa in his own home. When the suburb in which he was living became too dangerous, he moved to an apartment in Hama which he rented from his in-laws. Four of his children have now left Syria. Walid's family needs assistance as they are unable to work because the father suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure, and his wife is also sick.
