Alfred Zako and Jeannette Abdelki
Alfred Zako and his wife Jeannette Abdelki have two daughters - Lina born in 2009 and Lana born in 2011.
Until 2013, the whole family, including the paternal grandparents, lived in Hassaké where Alfred worked with his father in the motor oil business and Jeannette taught music at the primary school.
When the hostilities reached Hassaké, the family had to leave their home to seek refuge at the home of an aunt in Nasara for three months. They then moved to an uncle’s home in Machta al-Hélou. Later, as their elder daughter was suffering from autism, the family moved to Beirut in order to have better access to care for her diagnosis and treatment.
After many problems, the family returned to Damascus in Syria. Since 2014 Alfred and Jeannettes’ family have been living with a friend in a building annexe and Lina is attending a centre where she is able to receive care and half-board.
The father is currently out of work and therefore aid from Coup de Pouce would be extremely helpful and enable the family to get back on their feet.
