    The thing that is most important to Abu is his children and his family. His children’s learning. Children having better life than him as a kid

    What was it like for Abu and his family when they first arrived at the camp
    His child would hide from the planes. Had a leaky tent. No electricity. If you get sick you have to sand in clinic for hours.

    We are kind and supplie him with stuff he needed. Feel safe. Kids get education. Multi cultural. They would have a house again. The boy will shortly learn to not be afraid of the planes.
