Suzana's story

Suzana is an ethnic Egyptian married mother of two who have made her a happy grandmother of several grandchildren. She lives only with her husband, as her children are living near her house, with their families. Her family is very poor and she also suffers from health conditions.

Kindly note that many members of the Egyptian community, due to lack of nutrition and terrible living conditions, suffer from many diseases, unfortunately. A few of them, after the communist era collapsed, made a better life, yet some of them still suffer.

Day after day, you see parents and children of this community digging in the large trash bins of cities for sell-able scrap.

Her husband does labor construction activity every time he has the opportunity, in addition to their little agricultural activity on the site. They plant beans, potatoes, tomatoes, and onions and sell them to the farmer’s market.
