Mazlum Nizam Baker is one of 7 children living in Kawergows Refugee Camp with his mother and father. They came from Hasaka, Syria by walking, he was very tired and they walked without anything with them, even water.
At 16 years-old, the trauma he has been through has left him with little memory of the tragedies he has seen. Too much war and pain he says.
His family left Syria three years ago and it has been, “really hard” Mazlum says to get used to life in the camp. They need food, daily accessories and clothes. He feels cramped in the tents and wants a bicycle, like some of the other children, so he can have a little freedom and ride, “just like the wind”.
Mazlum wants to study so he can be an engineer and help re-build his region and everything the war destroyed. On 12 June 2017 Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation visited Kawergows Refugee Camp to deliver food, milk powder, clothes and medicine.
We met Mazlum and he agreed to speak with us about his life here, he would really like a bike.
