“When he grows up, I want my son to become somebody one day. I want him to become a responsible person. I want him to be successful, all through his life. I want to see him become educated, to work at a good job and finally start his own family.

I’m not educated but I can write.

With the situation in our country right now, I don’t think... Unless there is total peace... no gunmen, gunshots, fighting and killings... then I won’t be able to get out of this camp, and return home.

I have got a great role in my son’s future. I can determine the kind of person he will become. I will do this by guiding him as well as giving him the support he needs.”
