CITY OF ORIGIN: IDLIB
LENGTH OF DISPLACEMENT: 1 YEAR
STATUS: EXTREME POVERTY
OUR FAMILY: ABDULKAREEM (15), RAWAN (11), BAYAN (9), GAZEL (6)
Due to heavy bombardment and security issues in our city, we left our home in Syria in search of a stable place to live. Our father was injured in Syria where he was a volunteer rescue aid. He is unable to find work due to his injury. Our parents are struggling to pay our living expenses. Education is very important to us, and we do not want to sacrifice our education in order to survive. Thanks to Karam Foundation, we are able to continue our school and our parents are not under as much pressure.
UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2016: "This summer we visited our uncle and we went to the park a lot. We are eager to return to school to see our friends and play with them. Abdulkareem and Rawan are excited to take classes. I am looking forward to making new friends and Bayan wants to take Qu’ran classes. We want learn new subjects and improve our skills."
UPDATE - JANUARY 2017: "This semester was sad because I had to say goodbye to the principal that moved away. Luckily, we had a big celebration party. Abdulkareem got to go on a field trip with his class and Bayan also got to have a party at school for the teachers. We all did very well on our exams, even baby Ghazal. Abdulkareem did very well in Math, his favorite subject. Bayan and I did best in Turkish, which is our favorite class. We all have a lot of friends and we get to visit them from time to time as well as play with them at school." -Love, Rawan
