The Long Journey – A Syrian Family’s Europe Passage


Publicado originalmente em: 29/12/2015

After explosions rock their home in Kobane Syria, a young family set out on a perilous journey in search of safety in northern Europe.

“Our life was destroyed. We saw many people slaughtered in front of our eyes. We don’t dare go back,” Naleen said, huddled under a tree.

Dara and Naleen were among the thousands who fled Kobane, the Kurdish village on Syria’s border with Turkey, which was overrun by militants.

It was on the beach of the small fishing village of Skala Sikaminias, under the light of the Church of the Mermaid Madonna that we first met Dara and Naleen and their family. Like so many others, they had nothing but their mobile phones, some money, a bag for the children and the clothes on their backs.
