Family of MR SALIEM

Mr Saliem, 47 years old, is a care taker of Masjid Aman in An Giang Province , Vietnam with two young children. His house is in a dilapidated state, leaking rainwater whenever there is a downpour. There is also no toilet, making it inconvenient especially for his young daughter. His main source of income is selling cakes in the village, making about USD3 a day, barely enough to support his family, let alone to repair his house.

Family of MRs NUR ASI KIN

Mrs Asi Kin, a 36 years old mother of two from An Giang province in Vietnam has no home to call her own. She is currently renting a small house in her village but her problems were exacerbated when her husband lost his job last year due to Covid19 pandemic and remain jobless till today. To add to her woes, she is recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer. With no family income and the need for daily necessities and her medical bills, she could not afford to pay her rents anymore and is desperately looking to build her own house so that her 2 children can have a home and a brighter future.  You can lighten her burden by sponsoring a home she can call her own. 

A HOME FOR MRs MA RI YAM

A single mum of 68 years old, she is living alone in the village in a dilapidated house while her only son is living in another village in a rented house with his own family of four. Her son is also struggling to make ends meet as he is currently jobless due to the pandemic. With no formal education due to poverty, her son is unable to offer much help to alleviate Mrs Ma Ri Yam poor condition. Mrs Ma Ri Yam is also suffering from tuberculosis and diabetes and her health is deteriorating as she could not afford the medical fees. She hopes to  live the last days of her life with her son and his family.

A HOME FOR MRs MARY DAH

A single mum of 56 years old, she used to live in Malaysia with her daughter but because of no proper documentation, they were deported back to Vietnam a few years ago. With no home to go back to in her village, she has to take temporary refuge with another family on their goodwill.  She could not stay long in one house as she does not want to outstay their welcome. She has moved 5 times since and feels bad for her daughter, who works as a housekeeper with a meagre salary, barely enough to keep both of them afloat every month.

FAMILY OF  MRs RO KI GYAH

Mrs Ro Ki Gyah is a 36 years old mother of 2 young children from the village where Masjid Aman is situated. Her family left their village to be near her husband's workplace, but has since returned back to the village when her husband lost his job due to the pandemic. They only had a piece of land with no house. With the help of the villagers, they build a temporary shelter out of some zinc and bamboo to protect the family from the elements. They eke out a living by being fisherman, which is barely enough to support the family of four. They need a small home with proper sanitation (the temporary house has no toilet) to bring up their children.

FAMILY OF  Mr Mu Sa

36 years old Mr Mu Sa has three young children and works as a motorbike driver. Earning only USD2 per day, it is sufficient only for food and not much else, not even for his children's schooling or  his 2 month old baby's medical fees as she is suffering from a blood infection and need monthly treatment. He has to borrow money and repay the debt by doing odd jobs. 

Living in a 1 room rundown house that can collapse anytime, Mr Mu Sa and his family cook and sleep in the same area.  Mr Mu Sa hopes that some kind souls will help to alleviate his burden. 


FAMILY OF  Mr ADAM

49 years old Mr Adam stays in a rented house in the city together with his wife and the younger of his two children. He has to leave his elder son (in this picture) and his grandmother in the village in order to eke a living for the family in the city. His 12 year old son catches fish in order to survive. His son and the grandmother now live in a dilapidated house in the village belonging to Masjid Aman. The boy wants to go to school but due to poverty, he has not been able to. 

Home FOR MRS ASE

Mrs Ase is a 49 year old mother of 3, whose husband is currently working in another province in Vietnam. It has been more than a year since he return to their village due to Covid19 restrictions.

Home for USTAZ SO RO MANG

An Ustaz at Masjid Nekmah in An Giang Province, Vietnam, he teaches Quran for students at the masjid. He is the sole breadwinner in his family of four. He gets about USD50 per month from his duties at the mosque, which is barely enough for his family's expenditure. He is currently staying at his mother-in-law's house, as his family do not have a house of their own.  

Home FOR MR HA MACH KA MEL

Mr Ha Mach Ka Mel works as a motor driver but his job was affected by the pandemic. He now does odd jobs in the village to earn income for his daily expenses. He was divorced, with his wife having custody of the children.
