Mahmoud is a hard-working father of three sons and one daughter. His children are all under 18 years old. Mahmoud is a Palestinian National Authority employee; he works to ensure a good living and education to his children. For the last couple of years Mahmoud started working with his wife who opened a small tailoring workshop to help her husband. He is working harder as the conditions in Palestine are becoming harder.
