I am 19 years old and felt like my life was just beginning. We had a wonderful three-story home in Aleppo before the war. When the rebels began hiding in our neighborhood, the Assad regime began bombing our suburb every night. Night after night, the bombs missed us. But eventually we weren’t so lucky. We hid in the basement during the bombings, and on this particular night our home was hit by a bomb, and all three floors collapsed on top of us.
We eventually escaped the rubble. But we knew we couldn’t stay in Syria. With nothing left, our family fled to Kurdistan, where we now live in this refugee camp. We are thankful for the food and other items World Compassion provides. We are starting over with nothing.
