Tomas Saeed and Hanna Safaa
Tomas Saeed and his wife Hanna Safaa were living in Deir ez-Zor with their three daughters Rose, Mirna and Jessy. The father, Tomas, worked in the agricultural sector and had been able to acquire an apartment by means of a loan from the bank.
Due to the hostilities which hit the Deir ez-Zor region, Hanna and Tomas’ family had to leave their home and seek refuge in Hassaké in June 2012, where they remained for two and a half years. They then had to leave this temporary home due to the threats posed by the conflicts which had also reached this region in the north east of Syria. In order to find a safer area, the family moved to Damascus where they settled into an apartment in 2014.
The father has now retired and the family is in debt, notably for accommodation. The three girls are studying: Rose, 19, is at university in her first preparatory year for medicine or pharmacy; Mirna, 17, is preparing to sit for her baccalauréat ; and Jessy, the youngest, is 13 and is in eighth grade.
Aid from Coup de Pouce will enable this family to meet their expenses in relation to health and nutrition and will provide support to Rose, Mirna and Jessy in the continuation of their studies.
