“I am Wael Mustafa from Syria”

I am Wael Mustafa from Syria, “Selamia”. I came to Europe because of the war and we had a difficult situation on the road from my town until Greece. We faced a difficult situation on the borders of Turkey because we have two kids.

Also Al-Nusra Front they caught us and they investigated us. After a short period, we went to Turkey and we stayed there for 10 days, then we left to Greece.

First of all, we had to apply for our documents in Greece because in another way we couldn’t go to other countries in Europe. Moreover, in Greece, we had a difficult situation for accepting us (about the documents). After a long time, they accepted us when we had our newborn baby. Since we get in line and had to wait for a long time they gave us the ID. At first, they gave the ID just to my wife and to our two kids, except for me and the newborn. It’s has been almost 2 years that we are in Greece.
