What really changed my life for the better was to be part of the Mouneh project, where we are paid to prepare canned food which will be distributed to people in need. It came at the right time because my husband couldn’t find any work at the time and it was an opportunity for me to earn an income, which helped me pay off some of the debt we have been accumulating. But the best part of it all was knowing that my work would help someone in need by providing them with much needed healthy food in these difficult times.
Our situation remains difficult, and each month I have to choose between buying shoes and clothes to my kids or feeding them, between paying rent or paying off our debt. But now we know God is with us. Every time I feel like I am suffocating, I pray and tell God that I know He exists and will never abandon His children.
