AHMAD and abdullah
CITY OF ORIGIN: IDLIB
LENGTH OF DISPLACEMENT: 4 YEARS
STATUS: EXTREME POVERTY, ORPHANED FROM FATHER
OUR FAMILY: ABDULLAH (8), AHMAD (16)
We left our home in Syria to escape the violence and to continue our education. Our father died before we left Syria. Our mother is our sole caretaker. She works odd jobs to support all of us and to send us to school. We see our mother struggling to afford our living expenses. We love school and we want to continue our education. Since Karam visited us last month, we are able to attend school and feel less worried for our mother.
UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2016: "This summer we both took Qu’ran classes and visited our relatives. We really missed our friends and our school during our vacation. Abdullah wants to be first in his class because there’s a prize that you get when you’re first. I really hope he gets it." - Ahmad + Abdullah
UPDATE - JANUARY 2017: "This semester, we got our results back and we did really well on our exams. Abdullah got first in his class, just like he wanted. My favorite classes are Physics and Chemistry and I love tinkering around and making inventions. I use the internet every day to find things to make. My best friend, Qader, moved to Ankara, but we still keep in touch online every day. Abdullah is very popular and is friends with almost everyone in his entire class." -Love, Ahmad
