A door that closes.

 
 

Story: 

When visiting a lady who only had a curtain as a front door, a question popped up in our minds: how does someone feel safe at night, protecting their family, when the only thing between them and the outside world is a piece of textile? While most of us has a front door to protect our valuables, many just want to be able to sleep well at night, feeling safe. This is why we want to fix doors.

To promote economic opportunity and support job creation, we are partnering with local handymen to carry out the work of producing and installing these doors. In the Frmtoo Marketplace, we are building a group of handymen that we can tap into whenever we need help to carry out and complete the projects. 

 Stories of doors we want to fix.

Um Ahmed’s husband passed away three months ago (Q2 2018) and she was left alone to support three girls and a boy. The boy, who is the oldest is studying and working at a sweets factory (carrying and loading raw material) to try to make ends meet. Their door does not lock properly and does not have a proper door handle. We want to change that door!

Maha is a lady we know very well. She helps us finding families in need as she knows the Zarqa Refugee Camp inside out - she has been a resident since the 1980's. After 5 visits to the camp, Maha asked quietly if we could have a look at her mother's door as it does not close properly and bugs and rats frequently finds their way into their house. We want to help.

STATUS UPDATE: This door has been installed and the project was completed in Oct 2018.

Fathieh is a lady from the Zarqa Refugee Camp with personal health problems, supporting three boys on her own. Her husband does not live with them and her welfare benefits are insufficient to help improve the house she lives in. One of the many things Fathieh needs help with in to install a new door as the current one does not lock properly and it has broken windows. We want to help.
