Ansam is a 40-year-old woman from Tulkarem city in Palestine. Her youngest son had an accident when he was young and suffers from a disability in the lower part of his body. He is 12 years old now.
Ansam took out a loan from FATEN to fix her son's wheelchair and install an electronic stick to help him control his movement independently.
Ansam's husband can't afford to buy a new wheelchair or pay to repair the existing one as he works on a daily wage basis.
Ansam appears in the picture here in FATEN's branch in Tulkarem.
