MOATH 14-year-old orphan boy from Nusairat Refugee Camp
MOATH 14-year-old orphan boy from Nusairat Refugee Camp Moath lives with his mother, brother, and 2 sisters in Nusairat Refugee Camp in the middle area of the Gaza strip. After the death of the father, the family was left alone without any source of income. Hence they depend completely on Moath’s sponsorship from Al Majd Association for Development in addition to the help from social affairs every four months, obviously, this hardly covers their needs of food only. During the last year, the Moath’s oldest sister “Shaimaa” had graduated, but she didn’t get her certificate yet because she has to pay educational fees of about 350 GBP. Identically, his other sister ”Walaa” graduated from high school successfully. However, she couldn’t join the college due to the family’s severe economic status. Moath lives with his family in their own house which consists of 2 rooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The house has a deep dampness problem; in addition to that, the ceiling is leaching in Winter. Moath is in the 9th grade. He still studies at Al Salah charity school for orphans which are located in Deir Albalah city; he goes there by school bus. This school introduces a free education for orphans. In light of his certificate, he does not perform well in most of the subjects. However, Math is his favorite subject as he enjoys solving numerical problems. On the other hand, English is his least favorite; this is returned to the boring ways of teaching as he reasoned. Hence, attending extracurricular English courses would be very helpful to improve his marks. But this kind of courses cost about 100 GBP for each level. Moath and his brother suffer from thalassemia; so they need to take vitamins regularly. Also; his brother started to suffer from problems in his kidney; he had surgery and the problem was solved. But he still needs to visit the doctor every month for follow-up and tests. Moath and his brother need about 70 GBP monthly for their medical expenses. Al Majd Association for Development sponsors Moath and his family, along with tens of families in the Gaza strip, this will ensure for those families to have suitable and humanitarian life and will enable them to provide food, medication, and education.
