Wisal's hopes

Wisal was born in 1963 in Kiwkat village, in Acre district, Palestine. She lives with her 5 family members in Burj El Barajneh Camp, Lebanon.

As she was suffering from gonarthrosis, Interpal recently provided her with a $500 cheque which allowed her to get surgery.


Wisal told us that she always remember Palestine and will never forget it. She also added that she will return back home with her family, sit under the olive and figs trees, and pray in masjid Al Aqsa. Wisal ended our meeting with these words: “Thank you Interpal for your help, I wish you all the best for your 20th anniversary.
