The villagers gave us an old mat and two mattresses to sleep on.” Ahmed said.
It was the most difficult thing Ahmed faced when he saw his children sleeping at night while they were lying on that worn mattresses. Before the displacement, he used to look after his children and cover them while sleeping at night.
“We were in this situation for 20 days, but we felt like it’s 20 years” said Ahmed.

Ahmad received this aid and returned to his tent with the distribution team at IhsanRD. The family was very happy to get this assistance as the children opened the kits and scattered the items on the floor of the tent while they are laughing.
Now, Ahmed’s children can sleep on soft mattresses and enjoy the warmth of their blankets in the hope that one day they will return to their home and sleep safely in their beds when the war ends.
