“I am Kurdish and originally from Afrin, Syria, but my wife is from Aleppo, where we were living when the war started. We were in danger there and had no choice but to flee. We first moved to Afrin, but were forced to move once again in March 2018. That is when we started our journey to Greece.

After travelling for three months, we arrived in Moria, which is located on the island of Lesvos. Our third child, Mohammed, was born here. We are currently staying in the open accommodation site in Oinofyta while our asylum application is being examined. Our first boy is four years old and our daughter is two years old, and we want nothing more than security, safety and a better future for our children.”
