Read Simon form Syria's story - arrived 2015 👉http://bit.ly/2KY4RSI "I have a lot of precious memories from Syria, especially from my first year at university, which was wonderful and eye opening. I was following my passion in Environmental Science in Damascus, and my life was going well. But that year, the war broke out. At first, my family was anxious, but we were still hopeful that nothing would change for us. However, in the second year, the situation started to escalate quite rapidly and brutally. Soon, there were car explosions and mortar shelling on a daily basis, as well as electricity blackouts, water scarcity, and food shortages..... Life is ever changing, but through the numerous efforts of individuals, change into a better world can occur. Martin Luther King once said, ‘If you can’t fly, run; if you can’t run, walk; if you can’t walk, crawl; but by all means keep moving!’ Photographer: Kurt Tilse.
