Miyeser Sultân

My name is Miyeser Sultan. I am 38 years old, and I have two children aged nine and 12. When I was in Syria I lived with my family, and I learned sewing after leaving school. Later on, I got married, and I helped my husband to provide for our family. When the war started in Syria, we suffered greatly with fear, poverty and the high costs of living. I lost my father in an airstrike during the war. This work is helping us to meet our needs. I am working as a tailor and my husband is unemployed.

We hope that one day the war in Syria ends so that we can return. I hope this work will continue because it is my only source of income.

Many thanks to Martta, and I wish her the very best.
