15 yrs old
This is Yasmeen.
She was born in Gaza city.
Her father fought a long battle with cancer, and unable to afford proper medical care, he died when she was ten years old.
He left behind a family of 8 children, and with no source of income, Yasmeen’s mother found it difficult to cope.
The family lived in a very small home with only two rooms and a small kitchen. Life was difficult, and they were eventually living in poverty with no food and little clothing.
Thanks to sponsorship from Orphans in Need, all of this has changed…
Yasmeen now receives a monthly donation to put towards her schooling, and received Qurbani meat and Eid sweets.
She has bought herself a new school uniform and school bag, and finds her education interesting and engaging.
