“My name is Hadda Dawd, and I’m in my 80s and from Sarekani. During the attacks of the Islamic forces and Turkish army in 2019 on Sarekani, we left the area to save ourselves. However, my son was martyred while defending the city. The news was so heart-wrenching, and I was a refugee at the same time. I didn’t know to worry about what. Since becoming refugees, we have been relocated to the Washokani Camp in Al Hasakah, and we are still waiting for the news of our return. Our sorrow has exceeded all boundaries; being away from our homeland is difficult. Three years after being in the camp as a refugee, I started building a room out of mud to protect us from the coldness of winter, which would reach us soon.” Hasakah | @vimfoundationkrd
