You are here: The Moammar family’s story

Children without a mother

Mohammed was worried about his children, who kept asking where their mother was. After some time had passed, he decided get remarried to a woman who had also lost family in the war.

New phase of the family's life

We were able to help Mohammed start rebuilding his life by providing him with a ShelterBox, which arrived on the day of his wedding.

The box, which contained a sturdy family-sized tent and other essentials like blankets, cooking utensils and solar lights, enabled him to start a new phase of his life. He was able to live in the tent with his wife and children on the land where his destroyed house stands.

This tent enabled me to stay on my own land, where with all determination I will try to rebuild my home that was destroyed. I will stay determined because this is our land and we have the right to exist.
