Zayn and Jaafar don’t receive cash assistance from UNHCR. Their rent is 60 JD per month.

Jaafar is blind. Zayn must stay with him, so he cannot work.

Their living situation is miserable. They have no furniture at all. They need carpet, especially for winter.

Zayn worked with the American army. In 2001, insurgents threatened to kill Jaafar. Their father died from the shock.
