Samir Moussa and Fatima Issa
The family which Coup de Pouce is proposing that you aid in February is composed of Samir Moussa born in 1975 and his wife Fatima Issa born in 1978, together with their five children - Mouhamed born in 2000, Nadia born in 2002, Lina born in 2006, Wafa born in 2009 and Ahmed born in 2010.
The family of Samir and Fatima live in Al-Tabqah, a town under the governance of Raqqa situated near a large dam on the Euphrates. For three years they lived with some cousins until the lodgings became too small to house two families with ten children. They then rented an apartment for which the rent significantly reduced their income of £75,000 Syrian.
Samir firstly worked as a knife sharpener at his cousins and then, after a period of unemployment, now endeavours to earn a living as a repairman in various sections of the building trade. He is somehow or other able to obtain an income of £1,000 Syrian per day. As for Fatima, she has not been able to access further education which therefore restricts her ability to find well-paid employment.
Currently the family of Samir and Fatima are having great difficulty in making ends meet between paying rent for accommodation and living expenses. Furthermore, Fatima is in need of costly medical treatment in the absence of health insurance, while her daughter Nadia is also sick and needs an operation.
Aid from Coup de Pouce would enable this family as a matter of urgency to meet their health expenses and reduce their debts.
