Fatim and Samia
Fatim Nour and his wife Samia Adib Diabe we’re living in a building in Camp Yarmouk, a large suburb in the south east of Damascus.
In 2002, Samia died giving birth to her last child, the other siblings comprising four girls and a boy. At the beginning of the conflict, their suburb became the theatre of violent clashes and the father and his five children moved to find shelter in a refuge centre. In 2014, Fatim, the father, died at the age of 59 from a cerebral haemorrhage.
Currently, Yasmin, 30, the eldest of the five orphans, has married her cousin. Liliane, 24, has studied at an academy for two years. Alaa, 22, has passed his baccalaureate but has been unable to find work. Yazan, who is 19 years old, has been unable to pursue his studies but is trying to find small jobs. And finally the youngest, Samia, who is 15, has been adopted by her uncle following the death of Fatim.
Up until this summer, Liliane, Alaa and Hazem were living in the refuge centre where they had found shelter with their father. This centre has now been closed for three months and the three brothers and sisters have rented a small room in Jaramana for 40,000 Syrian pounds per month.
Aid from Coup de Pouce will be an enormous help towards paying for their accommodation and their daily necessities.
