Tortured in Iraq, Suffering in Jordan

In 2005, militia imprisoned this man for ten days because he used to live in government house. After some time passed, the militia detained him and his sixteen-year old son. After three weeks, during which militia members tortured the father, the militia put them in the back of a car and released them.

The father fled with his four children to Jordan. There, a fire destroyed their kitchen and destroyed everything therein. The owner told him that he needs to fix everything by himself. This Iraqi refugee does not have enough money to repair the damage and replace the appliances.

On the Run after Working for USA Military Contractor

A husband with a wife and two children worked with a contractor for the USA military in Baghdad. Militia threatened him. Three times, he changed addresses. Last time, he got threatened in Dora. One morning, he went out for work, and the militia vandalized his wall with graffiti identifying him as a spy.

They then came to Jordan. A grandfather was with them, but he died of cancer. The father suffered a heart attack in Jordan. His wife is sick with diabetes and needs special, expensive treatment which costs 41 JD monthly. Because it is special medicine, she gets no indemnity.

This is a picture of their living room.

Refugees in Syria, Refugees in Jordan

Sami Basheer, his wife, his mother, his five sisters and his 4 children fled Iraq to Syria.

In Syria, an explosion injured Sami’s wife and and one of his daughters. The daughter lost her leg in the explosion.

The increasing violence in Syria drove them to flee to Jordan. Tragically, his five-year old daughter was refused entry into Jordan because she had a Syrian passport. Thus she remains in Syria.

Sami receives no cash assistance from the United Nations.

Sami and his family live in a miserable house. Its iron ceiling leaks. They have only two rooms. They are in great hardship. To top it all off, Sami is now very sick.
