Humans of Kurdistan - West 01

“It has been almost five years since I have been living here with my five children. My husband was a drug addict, he would beat me when he was out of drugs. One of my sons lost a finger while working in a public restaurant in Qamishlo.
To support myself and my family, I am currently a supervisor at the Kurdish Red Crescent Society and sometimes I clean houses as well for a small amount of money. When the war in Syria started, my husband left me and the children. So I faced my family and decided to protect my children and continue in any way possible.”
