My mother » Me

A story from Stateless in Jordan

This is my mother and me when I was a child. When I was a child, I used to think, “I’m a human, give me a good life. Not food or clothes. I need a good life. I need a country, maybe a good job for my father.”

Story and drawing by Safiah Salem, living as stateless in the "Gaza" refugee camp in Jarash, Jordan.
