Fridge for Salwa
Until her oldest daughter got sick four months ago, Salwa, 41, did temporary jobs like cleaning. But she stopped when Aisha, 17, was hospitalized with an aggressive bacterium that is still ravaging her body.
Salwa never earned a lot, so has mostly relied on her ex-husband’s child support payments, which are irregular. She does her best to provide for her six children, but struggles to pay the family’s expenses. She does not have the means to cover a new refrigerator, now that their old one has failed.
