“His dad passed away a while back in car accident. It has been really difficult for all of us. I am his grandfather and I know that I can not replace his father but I am trying to be a strong male figure in his life. Driss is a little shy so I always try to cheer him up and give him a lot of confidence. We are from Benghazi and we came to Tunis for doctor check up. We are staying a little longer to spend some quality time together. This boy is my life. I don’t know what I would do without him.”
(Tunis, Tunisia)
