After years of displacement, Abbas returns to his hometown Mleha in Eastern Ghouta, only to find his house completely damaged.
He used to be a farmer, but with an amputated leg, injured left eye and high rate of unemployment, he could not find a job.
Abbas finds it hard not to be able to provide for his 2-year-old son and pregnant wife.
The war and collapsed economy have driven 8 out 10 Syrians below the poverty line.
Abbas is one of the beneficiaries of multi-purpose cash grants that are funded by the EU and implemented by Caritas and its local partner.
