Imad H. is a young man from Bethlehem. He owns an auto repair workshop next to Rachel's Tomb. Imad inherited the workshop from his father. who had it for 40 years. Imad had to change the location of the workshop many times from Rachel's Tomb to another location in the neighboring city of Beit Sahour, and then again 6 months ago to another location next to the Apartheid Wall. Now his workshop is much better.

Due to the many moves, Imad came to FATEN and took a $3,000 to purchase a car jack to replace his old one. This will save Imad time and make it easier to fix a larger number of cars.

In the photo, Imad and one of his six sons are in his workshop.
