Raman graduated from the Institute of Agriculture in Syria though unfortunately he was not able to build his career in this area due to the war. After refusing to join the military Raman fled with his wife Alo and three children from Syria to Greece in January of 2016.
Existence in Greece has proved an unfortunate challenge. Food is scarce and living conditions for the family are unbearable. Raman has diabetes and has been unable to afford any medication since leaving his homeland.
The family is concerned about surviving the upcoming winter in a tent and lack basic food and supplies.
