Mido’s family fled from Eastern Syria where they endured daily horrors. His mother recounts, “A simple trip to the dentist or to the store became traumatizing to me and my children. We were living in constant fear.” To protect her sons, his mother decided to escape. On the road, they were abandoned by the smuggler and remained in a no man’s land for three days, attempting to cross the border several times but getting turned back by security vehicles or cross-fire. They finally made it to Turkey, although their journey is not yet complete. Their goal is to reach their father in Germany, where he has obtained a residence permit. They haven’t seen him for three years and he has never met his youngest son Mido. Their only request is to raise enough money ($2000) to pay for passports and flights to their new home.
