The joy did not reach Hadeel, who immediately started to buy the treatment. She adds, “Maarouf, I will not forget him to Qatar, because at the time I did not ask for anything, I just wanted to treat my son.” Today, Hadeel has finished persecuting the supermarket owner who is not tired of demanding his debt. She explains: “We gave him his money, and the worry has gone away from my heart.” As for Duaa Abu Nahl, the mother of three children, she tells the East:
This time, one of them asked for a plane, while the little girl asked for a bride, and Doaa fulfilled her promise, as she bought them the two toys as soon as she received the grant.
She explains: “We used to go out together on the day of the grant distribution, eat outside the house and go to the port, so that day became the happiest day of my children.” Doaa confirms that the grant “resolves a crisis and creates an imprint of love and appreciation for Qatar in our hearts.” Doaa’s father works as a hired driver, and what he earns barely provides for his daily sustenance and the needs of his children, so the grant comes to make them happy, according to her saying. As for Mrs. Fatima Al-Madhoun, she is a heart patient and suffers from hypertension and diabetes despite her young age, and she is not more than thirty-one, but she lives a harsh life after being divorced.
