Relief For Those in Great Need
Shérif is a child from the Transformational Community Development (TCD) children’s group in the village of Bani Mazar. He is known among his community and friends for his difficult attitude and harsh tongue, but we see in Shérif a child who loves to help others, and we see that he is gradually changing to have a different attitude.
Om Ramy from Al Kom Al Ahmar started a goat-raising project to help her family. She gives the milk to her young daughter while she waits for the goats to give birth. Then she will sell the extra milk in the market in order to pay off the loan installment while using the rest for her family.
