Mahmoud Mohamed Chamy
Mahmoud and his wife were living with their four sons in one of the old suburbs of Aleppo.
The father worked as a carpet repairer and his work required him to travel to and from Egypt. The two oldest of his four sons are now 28 and 26 and have joined the army. The next son aged 22 has been drafted into military service and the youngest son is 18 years old.
When the fighting broke out in Aleppo, and notably in the old suburbs, Mahmoud’s family was under threat and decided to leave their home to seek refuge with their in-laws. In order to continue his work, Mahmoud moved to Egypt where he stayed for two years. Consequently, the suburb of Salhine where the family had found refuge was bombarded and the town of Aleppo was cut in two with only one point of access. It is in these circumstances that Mahmoud and his family have been forced to move around, firstly to the home of a friend and then to his brother-in-law’s, to eventually end up in a rented room for one year.
With the hostilities finally ceasing in the Aleppo region, Mahmoud and his family have returned to their former suburb, although without the means to restore their home.
Aid from Coup de Pouce would be much appreciated to enable them to get back on their feet and meet their most urgent expenses.
