Qamishli is among the 10 largest cities in Syria by population, about 184,231. It is a city in northeastern Syria, on the border with Turkey and close to Iraq. This is where Anas Ahmed Hassan called home with his 5 brothers and 1 sister until war forced them out.
At 16 years old, he and his family walked 10 hours without any money, any clothes, actually, Anas said, without anything. “It was so hard”.
Anas and his family now live in Kawergosk Refugee Camp and Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation visited him 18 June 2017. He asked us to bring clothes, food, school supplies and medicine because they need it and because their lives have “been really changed”.
Anas and his family wish to return home once the area is stabilized. “We had a good life, but we wanted to be safe”, says Anas.
