Humans of Kurdistan - South 78

June 24, 2020

“In 1991, we returned to Penjwen with my family. Some people of southern Kurdistan in the 90s would move to Eastern Kurdistan and Iran for a living. Like those people, I started off to Iran as well, as a young kid. I have worked in brick manufacturing, carpet weaving, agriculture, and herding. One of the jobs I started to like was herding because you serve an animal that cannot speak and he serves you in return. I have always worked consistently, now I work as a bricklayer. Like all other workers and laborers, it will affect me significantly if I don’t work for one day. Even if it is not for the money, working still makes me happy and I enjoy it.”
