“In developed countries, the government provides financial support for the disabled, but in Kurdistan we are the hardest working and most tired class in the community. I’m sad to say that the jobs that are available for the disabled people are jobs that normal people are ashamed to do. If you notice, most of the disabled people who work are either janitors, or employees of the city’s municipality. Being disabled has never stopped me from working hard and making a living for my kids. I really cannot depend on the government’s aid, they can’t pay salaries regularly, let alone help me. Instead, I’m always thankful for my shop neighbors that help me set up my trolley and equipment every day.”
