Mohamed Bachar Zinoun
Mohamed was living with his wife and children in his own home in a suburb south of Damascus called Mokhayam Al-Yarmouk.
The Mohamed family comprises five children, three of the young ones being from a previous marriage. One of Mohamed's sons is married, while the second is attending university. Mohamed worked in a company which made and repaired washing machines where he held an important position.
During the hostilities which affected the suburb of Mokhayam Al-Yarmouk, a rocket hit Mohamed's home causing extensive damage and especially traumatising the children. The oldest received hand and foot injuries and a second was traumatised and experiences difficulties speaking. Subsequently the whole family left the house and found temporary accommodation at the home of friends who rented them an apartment for one month. Following this, the mother and children stayed with their family while the father spent six months in other temporary accommodation.
In the meantime, Mohamed has found accommodation for his family but has had to take out a loan to pay for six months' rent in advance. The latest news is that the eldest of the two sons has received medical care and is improving, while the second son who was traumatised by the bombing has received treatment in a hospital run by the Red Crescent Movement but has not yet completely recovered.
Aid from Coup de Pouce would enable this family to find more stable accommodation.
