She raised them, and her family consisted of 4 girls and 4 boys, the oldest of whom was her daughter Janna, who is 20 years old, and the youngest of whom is her sister’s son, who is 9 years old.

Salwa Abdel Qader, 41, spoke to “The Seventh Day” about the story of her struggle to raise the children of her sister and sister-in-law, where she said: “There is no difference in treatment between the children, because they all have one. Mama is like my children, and my sister’s children are telling me, my aunt, because they are used to me like this, and from the hour of my sister’s death, they are like my children in every need of raising, eating, drinking and all.”
Her children and the children of her sister-in-law
She continued, “They live in an apartment next to me because their father is blind and disabled, but the older girl was in high school this year, so I brought her to sit with me so I could study for her and review together, thank God. She succeeded and got 65%, but the little girl is still in high school, and God willing, I will work with her like her sister and the two young ones in the fifth and sixth grades.”

One of them suffered from stress that affected him negatively and continued to drink cigarettes and left school, but I brought him back to school again, and I hired private teachers for him to study what he missed A month and a half before the exam, after that I preferred to see him and his uncle to some extent the champion of cigarettes.
