“I worked in a restaurant that was serving barbecue in Sarekani for 40 years. After our city was invaded by Turkey in 2019, we migrated to a camp near Tal Tamr. After we were settled, I had to start working again to provide a living for my family. I set up a trolley to sell (Mushabak), a type of sweet that’s well known there. I sell a kilo for a dollar, which is way lower than Bazaar’s price, and that’s because I pay no taxes or shop rents, and the IDPs can’t spend much money. I’m very happy with my work, I even have customers from outside of the camp. However, I can only work during the winter, in the summer not many people by my product. Therefore, I search for other jobs during the summer because I can’t afford being idle”.
