Jawad, who appears in this photo, is a 44-year-old married man from Gaza City. He lives with his wife and kids in a small simple house in the city. Jawad works as an employee in the public sector and he earns a low salary which is the only source of his family’s income. Jawad has a breathing problem and his doctor suggested a small surgery that will end this problem. He would like to do the surgery, but he does not have this money.
Jawad is requesting a USD loan from FATEN to help him to pay the costs of doing a surgery in his nose. His loan will enable him to continue to easily do his daily activities.
