JOSEPHINE’S STORY

Josephine lives by herself nearby, in a run-down ground-floor flat in Achrafieh which is in the worst possible condition: no water, no electricity, no heat, no window-panes, and the unpleasant smell of the filthy apartment greets your senses before you even step inside....

Nazareth Students visit BASSMA's Families at Christmas!
13. Dec 2012


(News & Events)

 

BASSMA held a presentation at Notre-Dame de Nazareth school to talk about its values & mission, after which the students decided to visit three BASSMA families and offer them food packs.

 

The visit took place on December 13, with 10 students per family. The students were so motivated to help that they collected lots of food products, including milk, flour, sugar & cheese, and they shared their experience and feelings with the others who could not come too.

 

The first family was composed of 4 members, the parents with two young girls suffering from Cystic Fibrosis. The father also suffers from a head trauma that is affecting his psychiatric balance. The mother started explaining the family situation with eyes full of tears; she told them about their extremely difficult financial situation since no one is working in the family. Each month, a huge amount of money is needed to secure medicine for the girls. The students were speechless with tears in their eyes. They couldn’t find the words to console the afflicted mother. The mother also talked about BASSMA’s help and continuous follow up.

 

The second family is also in a very difficult financial situation. The mother started telling the students, especially the girls that despite being very educated, when she got married her husband didn’t accept her working and their situation became very bad. She told them to be careful in their choices in the future. When the students gave her the food packs, she admitted she was worried about lunch before they came, because she did not have anything to prepare for her five children, not even milk which she was getting from the neighbors to feed her little girl. The students were extremely moved when they knew that the family couldn’t pay this month's rent and that there was a risk of eviction from their house.

 

The third case was also a family of 4. The mother suffers from gastric cancer, the older boy is epileptic and the other two children suffer from minor Thalassemia. One of the students asked the mother about her clinical case; she didn’t want to tell us that the cancer was spread to her breast. She was mostly worried because she needed to find a new house since the owner had given them a deadline till December 31st to leave the house. The students were very shocked about this cruel behavior. They left very angry about this unfair situation and thinking about this "house" the family is living, which is better described as a room on the building's rooftop.

 

In the name of BASSMA’S families and team, we thank the students of the Nazareth school; you have helped BASSMA in the smile & healing process. We hope to do much more in the future.

 

Merry Christmas to you all and God Bless you!
