My sister likes snakes, but I don’t. We had so many pets at home in Iraq. It was more of a zoo than a house! We were in difficult situations before we came here. When we got the letter in Iraq we were in a very bad way physically and psychologically. Then when we arrived at Moria we saw terrible things, even worse than Iraq.
Now we are okay. We accept the reality of our situation and share in the evolution of Pikpa. This project should grow and get bigger. They should bring vulnerable people in Moria here. In Moria a lot of people get damaged.
In Pikpa I make doghouses out of wood. This is my talent. I like carpentry and karate. Maybe I could do karate with the wood!
The other day I was asleep in my friend’s flat. He put a speaker next to my head to play some music. It was so loud! My friend also has a video of me with the vacuum cleaner on my face – like Botox! I have met a lot of good people here. My friends keep me going.
