“My name is Omar, and I am a tailor from Kobani, Syria. When war started making life in Kobani too dangerous, my wife decided that we had to leave. So we fled to Greece via Turkey, crossing through land borders in Evros with our two children.

Despite liking Greece and the safety it has provided us, we would prefer to live in France or Germany. I could open a new store and resume my career as a tailor, while raising our children away from war and pain.”
