Ferial Ibrahim

In 2002, the Israeli government began construction on the Apartheid Wall. The Wall’s total length is 723km, and annexes nearly 50% of the West Bank, completely disrupting life in the region. The wall brought with it the loss of at least 6,500 jobs. Ferial’s husband was one of many who lost their job, and was forced to shift the responsibility of providing for the 6 member family member to his wife. Ferial makes a living from selling what she bakes at home to other families. For two years, Ferial’s family went without any income because of Ferial’s brain tumor, which forced her to stay immobilized.
