Gabi, 23 years old, from Aleppo, Syria

(Part 1/3) “…because of the war, we didn’t have jobs, there is no life there, we couldn’t live there - no job, no food, no water, no electricity… just darkness. Everything darkness.” Gabi fled Aleppo three years ago after destruction took over his city. His family of five was mercilessly split in two: him and his mother fled first to Turkey and then to Greece, but his brother and two sisters couldn’t afford the trip to Greece and are now scattered within Turkey. It’s been 8 months since his arrival and refugee registration, and he and his mother are still living at a refugee camp, with no signs of progression.
