Iraqi Stories 

 

*Adani is an Assyrian-Iraqi married man from Tilisqof, Iraq, who used to work as an electrician in Iraq. They have been in Jordan for three years, and the situation is hard. They are not able to work and pay for their daily life expenses. Adani’s 25-year-old daughter is an artist who paints oil paintings. We had lunch with them, and it was very delicious.

Making the Most of the Moments

Vocational Training Programme, Jordan

 

*Rifat is an Iraqi young man and is 17 years old. Rifat and his family have been in Jordan since 2015. He and his family fled from their hometown, Bartila Village, because of the death threats made by violent groups in the area. They did not have anywhere to go. Everything was taken away from them, including their house, their money, their belongings, their friends, their memories, their village . . . everything!

Sharing Favourite Cultural Foods

Vocational Training Programme, Jordan

 

We are still working with Rana, the lady from Syria, in our Vocational Training Programme. We have ordered 50 pickle jars recently to distribute to the refugees during the home visits. It’s a win-win situation because Rana will generate income and the refugees we visit will enjoy her yummy pickles.

 

Also, we ordered some Armenian pickles and sausage from Jerayer.

Helping Families Support Themselves

Vocational Training Program, Jordan

 

*Ranim is from a village named Jobar in Syria. She is married and has three daughters and one son.  When the war in Syria became increasingly violent and the frequency of bombings multiplied, Ranim and her husband feared for their family’s safety and livelihood so, in 2013, the family fled Syria and came to Jordan. They registered as refugees with the UNHCR and finally began their lives here.  

 

Overcoming Horror and Regaining Hope

*Aliye is an Iraqi refugee from Qaraqosh village. She left her village when a violent group attacked Mosul and the surrounding villages. She moved to Erbil with her family and since they didn’t have a place to stay, they stayed at a community center for a couple months. They had to share the same hall and bathroom with thousands of people. The situation was miserable.
