Refugee: I have two degrees, but there is no work for me in Iraq

GRODNO, 9 December (BelTA) – We want to get to Germany to have a normal life and a job, a 31-year-old refugee told a BelTA correspondent at the temporary accommodation facility in the logistics center on the Belarusian-Polish border.

“I am here with my wife and a 4-year-old daughter. We are heading to Germany to have a normal life and work. I have two university degrees: I can work as a math teacher and a programmer. I am a young, strong man who wants to work and earn money to provide for the family. Virtually nothing was left of my hometown in Iraq. Nobody needs us there. We, adults, can get used to everything: to living in the open, to hunger, and even war. But we do not want this for our children, they have not deserved it,” the refugee said.
