Yusuf (2), pictured in Turkey, only knows a life of displacement.

In Syria,Yusuf ‘s mother Maryam worked from home making clothes for a living. When she was pregnant with Yusuf, her husband was killed in a bombing. Despite being pregnant, Maryam fled for Turkey with her son Khaled (12), daughter Aia (4), her brother Nayef and his children.

Now the family lives in an old barrack behind the farm where they harvest tomatoes. When asked what he’d like to do, Khaled said, “I want to go to school, I have never been. I just want to be a normal child.” Maryam dreams of opening a small shop to sew and sell Syrian clothes.

“No one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark
you only run for the border
when you see the whole city running as well” (Warsan Shire)

We cannot know what is it like to live the life of a refugee who was forced to flee his/her home because of violence, war, persecution, abuse, discrimination, torture, rape, poverty until having experienced it ourselves.

For the past five years, we have witnessed a human tragedy unraveling in Syria. There are no words to describe the horror that is happening right now.

In those moments when we feel helpless and hopeless, we reach out to those who are suffering and finds ways of helping. I hope that you can provide some kind of support to this family so that they know that they are not alone.

Thank you for your generosity and please spread the word!
