Humans of Kurdistan - South 25

“We were not here in 2004, we lived in the areas around Khurmal, Halabja, and Hawraman. I came to Sulaimani, I was young then and the currency had recently changed. I realized I only had 500 dinars. I had gotten a new job and I was supposed to go to work. It was my first time in Sulaimani and I didn’t know my way around. I took the wrong bus and only realized it when I got down, so I had to walk. When I got to work, it was already 11:00, I was supposed to be there at 7:00. They got really mad at me… I have been working since then and have been able to create a new life for myself.”
