The journey
The journey
It was a very tough decision, from one suffering to another. But I had no choice. I was so worried about my wife and children as we sailed in the sea with 70 other people, but this is the only thing to do so we can get to Europe and live in peace.

I’m Majd. We left Turkey from Izmir under a temperature of -14. We had nothing to stay warm except our clothes. We are three guys, and there are families with a total of 7 children on this journey. They call it the journey of death and danger.

I’m Abu Talal.

I’ve been here since 2013. My children got sick because we burn garbage for fire when it’s cold. They have allergies now. Sometimes, we don’t have enough food.

I’m Samira. We face many difficulties here. We hardly have water. I have to give my children a bath in the room because of the cold, and there’s no bathroom. Once, we stayed for two days without water because the neighbours wouldn’t give us some.

I ran away with my brothers and sisters in a diesel tank. We fit two families inside and spent more than 2 hours inside .
We could have died.

I’ve been here for 7 or 8 months, and there’s no work.
We don’t have money to buy logs, so we burn nylon bags. When it rained heavily last week, water was pouring inside the tent from all sides. No one is helping.

I have 7 children. We’ve been here for 2 years. When it rained lately, water was everywhere. The tent collapsed and we had to fix it under the rain. How can my children sleep on a wet floor? The situation is terrible and we’re extremely tired.

They call me Umm Jassem.

We’ve been refugees for 3 years and the situation is still the same. I know that burning different things for fire can cause asthma, but we have no choice. It gets cold and when it rains, water drips in through the tent.

I’m Ibrahim Mohammad Al-Hussein.

We got married one month before the war. Here, things are difficult and different. We need two diesel containers to stay warm. When it snows, we wipe the snow off the roof or the tent will fall. How will these thin walls resist the bitter cold? Tell me.

My name is Ramadan Hussein. They call me Abu Antar like the TV show.
We suffered a lot to get here, during the cold and snowy weather.
I spend most of my time inside the tent, and I hope that one day I will go back home.
