WHO ARE REFUGEES?

All kinds of people can become refugees; rich or poor; male or female; doctor or farmer.  No one is a refugee by choice.  Individuals are refugees because they are persecuted based on their ethnic background, faith, opinions or because they flee an armed conflict.

 

A refugee is, first and foremost, a human being, a person with rights and dignity.  Despite their differences, refugees throughout the world have one thing in common: they cannot live peacefully in safety and dignity, in their home country.

SARMAD

Family 1:  A single male - Sarmad, Born 1990

 

I am Iraqi citizen. I was living with my family in an area called New Mousel, in Mousel. I was forced to leave Iraq because I was threatened to be killed in 2008 also because there was fear an insecurity for my family and because we were Christians. That’s why I decided to go out of Iraq to Jordan. I left in January 14th 2014 to save my life and to go to a safer placer place where I can be free with my religious beliefs and have my peace and freedom.I have been waiting in Jordan for more than four years and I’m very sad and my heart is broken for what had happened to me and I’m always worried about my family in Iraq because my parents are left alone after my brother left to Turkey to find a good chance for him to find a better life. going to Canada would be my last chance to have a better chance in life, and you are the only ones who are able to help me. Waiting patiently for your help and answer.
