Chamoun., 10, has been suffering from parental violence, which led to numerous psychological & behavioral problems. Bassma referred him to a speech therapist, psychologist & a specialized school to help him continue his studies.

Chamoun is registered at the Ministry of Social Affairs as a student with special needs, and the Ministry usually pays the fees of the specialized school; but the problem is that the parents were late to register him for the school year 2015-2016, therefore the ministry was unable to cover the tuition fees.

The annual tuition fees of this specialized school is 4,500$, with a special discount for Bassma of 3,000USD.

Rundown House MakeOver - Keushkerian Family
26. Jun 2015


(News & Events)

Keushkerian Family, Bourj Hammoud, Beirut, Lebanon.


STORY
It is a family of four: a father, a mother, a teenage boy and a grandmother.


The father sells coffee for a living, using a very old coffee machine on the street corner of his house in Bourj Hammoud. He earns a maximum of 15,000LBP per day, and has to pay for the material (coffee, water, plastic cups, sugar, etc.) which amount to 10,000LBP per day. He suffers from diabetes and gangrenes in his legs and had to amputate his toes. He is currently suffering from many infections and has no means to pay for his medicines, which cost 200,000LBP each month.

 


The mother found a job two months ago as a cleaning lady in a school. She earns 400USD per month.
The boy, 12 years old, is a student in a semi-private school. He needs tutoring classes.

 


The grandmother is suffering from hypertension and osteoporosis and needs chronic medicines. The family is unable to ensure all those needs.

HOUSE CONDITIONS
The family’s rundown house is located in a very popular street in Bourj Hammoud. It is an old construction which has not been renovated since the grandma was a young girl.

 

The house is composed of the following:
- A tiny living room on the street level, which lets wind and water enter the house in the winter. The grandma, the mother and the boy also use this room as their bedroom.
- A bedroom, with a broken double bed where the father sleeps, and a broken closet.
- A rundown kitchen with a sink and counter so old they could crumble at any point.
- A very old toilet, a sink that can also crumble at any point, and a damaged water heater without shower.
- The rooftop infiltrates water during winter.
- The wall painting is falling apart, all windows are old and broken, and the main door is cracked.
- Electric cables are dangling all around the house, and spark off whenever rain comes in.

 

The insalubrities of the place present a serious health and security danger for the whole family.
Because of the living conditions, the family members are depressed and without ambition. There is no place for the family to gather for a meal, and no space for the boy to study.
Providing better living conditions for this family would transform their life.
