Experiences of refugees we have met on the camp

Refugee stories: Yazan


Belgian volunteers Hadie and Lucas recorded an interview with Yazan, a 20 year old resident at Alexandreia, originally from Damascus.

People often ask why the young men left Syria instead of fighting and why they came to Europe instead of staying in Turkey. There are good reasons for that and maybe the words of this brave, young man will make that clear.

The 5 minute interview, in English, begins at 1 minute 50 seconds
