Emine Khan

My name is Emine. I am 28 years old, and I have four daughters and two sons, the eldest of whom is only nine years old. When the war broke out in Syria, life became so hard, and we lived with the fear of a missile hitting our home. There was no bread or food of any kind. I then came to Turkey with my family, leaving my children and husband behind in Syria, even though I was nursing a newborn baby. After a few days, my husband and children came to Turkey. I thank God that my children are now safe with me, but my husband cannot find work.
