“After the Turkish state conquered our city in 2019, I was displaced to Ras al-Ayn. I was too sick to escape when the Turks advanced in our area. One day, my 25-year-old son went out to buy me medicines but never returned. Later we got the news that he was imprisoned in one of the Turkish prisons in Batman. From that point, my life has been flipped upside down. Even though I am sick, I work as a seamstress to send him some money. My only hope in life is to see him one more time.”
