Abdullah is a Syrian men’s barber, who has Kurdish origins, and a father of two boys, Ghaleb 4 years and Allan 2 years said with chocking voice:” I wanted a better life for my wife and two children, somewhere far from the enormous disaster going in Syria”.
After a long sigh Abdullah continues: ”I came to Turkey and started working for 50 Liras per day, my sister was helping me to pay the rent; later on I met two smugglers, one Turkish and the other was Syrian, they offered a journey at a cost of 4 thousand euros for me and my wife, and they wanted me to take two thousand euro for my children! .. But I told them I do not have any more money.
We were 12 people on 5 meters long fishing boat, which flipped over due to high waves not so far from the beach, the Turkish smuggler jumped of the boat and ran away, I held my wife and my children so tight to the flipped boat, but the waves were too high that my first sun died, I left him so I can try to save the other one….” Abdullah stops and bursts into tears before carrying on:” my other son died and also his mother”
Abdullah concluded his sad speech by saying:” I am talking to all the world when I say have mercy on Syrian people, help them! The Syrian worker in Turkey takes 25% of the original wages, I wish my little Allan will became a symbol of Syrian suffering”
Abdullah’s Relative Ahmad said that journey went on 12:00 am ,on the small fishing boat and we received the bad news four hours later.
