Syria War: refugees at the Turkish border – III

“I’m Ahmet. I’m from Tell Abyad, Syria.

I’ve been living in Turkey with my family for about seven months. We ran away because a group of fundamentalists called Deash Isid attacked our home and our shop, because we are Kurdish.

Back in Syria we had a shop and we were doing good business, but we didn’t have any sort of freedom as Kurdish people. Despite all that we were happy and lived peacefully.

The Turkish government never helped us since we got here, and in hospitals we don’t get the same assistance as Turkish people.

I’m forced to work for less money if I want my family to survive in this critical situation, but I don’t always find work.

What I hate the most about this situation is that my children can’t go to school, and I’m not able to give them a chance at a good life.

My dream is to go back to my country and live in peace, everyone as brothers.

I’m lucky because I was able to find a house for my family, but many refugees were not as lucky.

We don’t have any heating and it’s very cold in the winter, while in the summer we have a big problem with mice in the house. We all live together in one room where we eat, sleep, and do our daily activities”.
