Hanadi Al-Masri lived in Meleha, an outlying suburb to the east of Damascus which had been severely hit in 2011-2012 at the beginning of the hostilities.
As a consequence Hanadi lost her hairdressing salon which she managed. Also, Hanadi and her daughter had to leave their accommodation and rent an apartment in Jaramana.
Currently Hanadi and her daughter are unemployed and are living with the support of friends. Hanadi’s health has deteriorated and she has had to have two operations in 2014 and 2015. In 2016 she moved in with friends because she could no longer pay her rent. Since then she has been living with different friends each month. Recently her health has once again deteriorated and she now needs another operation which would cost 350,000 Syrian pounds for the hospital fees and necessary medicines.
Aid from Coup de Pouce would enable Hanadi to receive the medical treatment and the care required for her recovery.
