“I hope my son and daughters get to achieve what I could not.” Lina, 34, is a housekeeper living in Zarqa, Jordan. Two years ago, Lina started receiving cash assistance to support her family. She lost her husband in 2015, and since then she has been raising her three children and taking care of her bedridden mother on her own. Before she received UNRWA cash assistance, she struggled to provide nutritious food for her family. “I used to buy the rotten fruit and vegetables because I didn’t have enough money to buy the good ones.” Cash assistance has given Lina the dignity of choice to buy the things her family needs and hope for a brighter future.
