Adi’s story, Bulgaria

Adi, a Syrian refugee was a computer teacher in a secondary school. Now she doesn’t even have a phone.

In Myanmar, it was as if we were underwater, we couldn’t breathe.

We just had to leave. In the morning, we were alive but there was no certainty in the evening. I feel heartbroken because they destroyed our masjid, our young children, our houses, our properties. It was very painful, very painful. I didn’t want to stay there anymore.

Their courage is admirable.

It is an emotional and eye-opening experience to sit and listen to the stories and incredible suffering of refugees. It makes one appreciate the simple things in life such as having a safe home and future.
