Hassan,* is a disabled father who lives in the Middle East, was diagnosed with a brain tumor almost three years ago. Following surgery to remove the tumor, he fell into a coma for several months. Last year Hassan was finally well enough to return home to his wife Aliyah and their two young daughters.
The effects of the tumor left Hassan with severe physical and mental disabilities, forcing Aliyah to become the family’s breadwinner. Her husband’s need for almost constant care makes it hard for Aliyah to earn an income and provide for her family.
Using funds from the Adopt-A-Family program, CAM staff and contacts delivered a food parcel to Hassan and Aliyah. A gift of food is a bright spot of hope and relief in this family’s daily challenges.
