Riad (61) earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and worked for the Syrian defense ministry for 15 years before starting his own company. But when conflict broke out, Riad’s life was greatly affected. Many of his family members were killed and Riad himself was captured and tortured several times by extremists. This caused him chronic psychological problems. When he and his wife Rania finally decided to flee, it was not an easy endeavor. After three attempts which all resulted in capture, they finally crossed the border to Turkey. Now they are actively seeking work and a chance to rebuild a life in peace.
