My Story:

Abolghasem’s parents divorced due to his father’s severe drug addiction. In addition, his father was very irresponsible and abusive. On these grounds Abolghasem’s mother sued for divorce. Since the court found the father unfit, the custody of children was given to the mother. She lives now at her parents’ house with her two kids. Unfortunately she cannot work very much because of a recent heart attack and advanced thyroid problem. Their only support is government benefits and occasional help from Abolghasem’s grandparents. The mother applied for financial aid from a charity but there is a long waiting list. Abolghasem is a talented student; but due to the family’s poor financial situation, he really needs help to complete his primary education.
