IDP Salah-Aldin

Our lives changed dramatically after we had to leave our home back in 2014, in that year I lost 2 of my daughters and one of my sons became disabled when our house in Salah-Aldin was bombed. We lost everything, before we had our own house and we lived a nice life but now we can only afford basic food and we live in a small old rental house our main source of income is the social security salary that I receive on monthly basis, before I used to be a tailor but my sewing machine broke and I couldn’t afford to fix it, also my husband has blood cancer (leukemia) and he can’t work. We haven’t eaten meat in a year and a half, I can’t express how grateful I am for Islamic Relief, This is the first time in a long time that I saw my family this happy my children and husband were so pleased to see the fresh meat this Eid may God bless you all for your kindness and thoughtfulness.
