But she passed away, we lost our daughter. We only got 20 thousand dollars. We decided with my husband to move to Sweden. Those who would take us to Sweden had swindled us, we lost our $ 20,000. Then we went to Iraq. My aunt was in there, we went to visit her. But in there they put us in jail for 6-7 months by saying, ‘you are Syrian citizens, your passports are fake.’ After the court we came to Nusaybin. Then we came to Mardin due to conflicts in Nusaybin."

Mrs. Azize said that in the years when she lived in Lebanon, her financial situation was very good and she even sent her children to private schools. She said that they are now in need.

Mrs. Azize, "We have three children. They want something every day but I cannot afford. So I feel very sorry. My psychology was so bad that I had to use medication now. We are looking for work, nobody is giving a job. My husband does not speak Turkish because he is Lebanese. I do not know which door to knock now. I'm in a very difficult situation."

"Because we forced to live in a damp house the disease is progressing"

Pointing to the fact that the house they are in is damp, causing the illness of their children be progressed. Azize said, "My child is sick. Allah bless, the Foundation for Social Welfare helped 600 TL for the treatment of the child. But we live in a basement now, the house is all damp that’s why child's illness progressing. When we went to the doctor, he said that the child was not getting better because the house was damp. But there's nothing I can do. In the winter the house is flooding, dripping. We are waiting for help from the authorities, we want them give us a job opportunity. I just want a job, we will work if there is job. My husband, my children and I too were crushed and upset."

Speaking in the tears, call to authorities in desperation, Azize said, "I had a daughter named Besna at the age of 5. I lost her because of the cystic fibrosis. My son Eymen is suffering from the same disease. I lost my daughter and I do not want to lose my son either. There's nothing coming from my hand, I'm desperate."
