Poor Housing Leads to Um Zayd’s Illness

Um Zayd (5)
Terrorists killed Um Zayd’s sister and three of her children in their own home. Two of the martyred woman’s children were with Um Zayd and thus survived the attack. To evade the threat of another attack, Um Zayd moved. Nevertheless, the threats continued. She moved to Amman, Jordan, bringing her orphaned niece and nephew with her.

They are living a very hard life. They live in very old room. It is extremely cold, and the roof leaks water. The walls are old and damaged. The kitchen is in poor condition.

Now, after only three months in these conditions, Um Zayd and her niece are very sick with a lung infection.
