Sameera is a pharmacist from Gaza city in Gaza Strip. Sameera's husband is a pharmacist too. They started their own pharmacy five years ago and have been running it together. Sameera and Sameer have two daughters: Rahaf who is 4 years old and Raghad, 2 years old.
Sameera came to FATEN and took out a loan to purchase a large amount of medications as well as hygienic items which will increase the returns and attract more customers. Sameera is a religious woman, as are most of Gaza's inhabitants; therefore, Sameer appears in the picture here.
