Mustafa Abdul Latif, 48, was a truck driver living in Homs. But his beloved city has been reduced to rubble, with very little clean water, electricity or food. He fled to Jordan with his heavily pregnant wife Fatima and their four children, after his sister and her young family were brutally killed in their own home. Now, Islamic Relief provides food vouchers each month so that Mustafa can feed his family. “That’s how we’re surviving, and they’re a big help,” he says. When the stress caused a potentially fatal blood clot in Mustafa’s heart, we paid for the operation to remove it and save his life.
