Families in April
The family of Muhammad Ali Muhammad al-Hassan and Raja Omar
The first family that Coup de Pouce is proposing you support in April consists of the father, Muhammad Ali Muhammad al-Hassan born in 1951 and the mother Raja Omar Omar born in 1971, along with their five children: Aya born in 1998, Asie born in 1999, Fatima born in 2001, Hana born in 2003 and the youngest, Mohsen, born in 2009.
The family is living in Al-Bab, a town situated 30km to the northeast of Aleppo in a home which they inherited. Muhammad Ali, the father, has not worked since 2001, while Raja, the mother, provides support by producing and selling, according to the seasons, juices, jams and other products made from fruits and vegetables.
The two older girls are not currently working, while Fatima is studying mechanical engineering at University, Hana is preparing for her baccalaureate and Moshen is about to enter secondary school.
In these circumstances, aid from Coup de Pouce would enable this family to meet their essential expenses.
The family of Muhannad al-Khalaf and Nadia Nadaf
The second family that we are proposing you support consists of Muhannad al-Khalaf born in 1976 and Nadia Nadaf born in 1979. Their four children are Housen born in 2007, Israa born in 2008, Ihab born in 2010 and Nivine born in 2012. Until the end of 2012, the family was living in accommodation which they owned in Qaboun, an outlying district in the northeast of Damascus.
Following deterioration of the situation due to confrontations occurring from 2012, the family moved to Idlib where there was the possibility of living in a house inherited from the grandparents. However, this region was also affected by the conflict from 2013 and the family had to leave Idlib to find shelter in Damascus. On the way from Idlib to Damascus the family was involved in an accident during which Israa received a fractured jaw. On arriving in Damascus they rented an apartment in the Jaramana region, but from 2013 to 2021 they changed their accommodation three times as the rent rose from13,000 to 40,000 Syrian pounds. Their previous accommodation in Qaboun has been completely destroyed.
Today Israa, after having had several operations, needs ongoing medical treatment, while her brother Housen had meningitis at the age of one which has affected his growth. Moreover, the parents are in the process of divorce and the family does not receive support from the father who works as a nurse in the hospital. Nadia, the mother, is working as a housekeeper to pay for the expenses of the family.
Aid from Coup de Pouce would enable this family to meet their most urgent expenses, particularly in relation to health.
