We Walked Out of Qamishly Syria
Rojda Muhammed Zaki is 9 years old, she has 2 sisters who are 6 and 3 years old. She and her family have lived in Kawergows Refugee Camp for 5 years. Rojda tells Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation staff that her family was afraid of being captured by ISIS, so they walked out of Qamishly Syria with only the clothes on their backs. They walked for 2 days and Rojda says, “…it was very scary and really difficult”, she was just 4 years old then and her sister was 1. It took two days to reach Kawergows and now they are “safe.”
The distance between Qamishly Syria and Kawergows Camp is approximately 308 km, not an easy trek for an adult, let alone children. We met Rojda 23 August 2017 in the camp while delivering clothes and supplies. She told Bring Hope she wants to become a teacher so she can help those children who have no hope of learning. What a beautiful idea, wouldn’t you agree? To help Rojda or others like her, see bringhope.info.
