Story

As we all sit cosy in our own homes with the option to have the radiators on or off, with the option to eat & drink whatever food we want, with the option to walk, sit & sleep in comfortable conditions, with the option to buy whatever we want we have people in the world today who don't have these options. The aim is to make peoples living conditions better in the West Bank of Palestine. I had the opportunity to meet a Palestinian family of 7 while I was there, both the father & son are not capable of working due to mental & physical disabilities, theres the mother who completes her duties by looking after the household & by feeding the family to whatever she has available, then there is 4 daughters & only one of them is currently working who is maintaining the family & looking after the father & brother also their medical costs, she can only do so much, while the other three daughters are studying & can't find a job. This is some background about the family. Imagine if we had to lie in this state/condition? would we be able to deal with it? My aim isn't to give them money, my aim is just to renovate the home to such a state that its ok to live in for the father & son who both have a mental disability. The current house is not safe, the electricity is all fully linked to one wire & its over loaded, with your help I can try to the best of my ability to make their home a home.
