“We used to live in the village, we moved to Mardin in 1992 and we live here now. Our land and farm are still in the village and we visit back every weekend to take care of them. We used to do every work before coming to the city, but now we have no jobs in Mardin, and we cannot visit our village and come back every day. We used to start working from sunrise until noon, and take a rest under tree shadows, then go home and prepare dinner. We used to prepare milk for dairy products and made loads of bread, turning the house upside down and then clean it all over again, and later on bring water from the river. We never rested, and never felt pain or illness. There is more time to rest now, but there is also as much illnesses.”
