Voices from Syria – Rahaf

rahaf

“We had a normal life. We went to university. We had friends. We were even a little spoiled by our parents. And then suddenly we had nothing. We were cold, hungry and alone…. My father received a phone call saying he should leave or he will be killed. We left the house straight away, without time to pack. We learned that our house was burned down later. We fled along back roads and through fields to avoid checkpoints. We walked across the border.”

Rahaf is one of more than a million people who have fled Syria because of the war.  To give to CAFOD’s Syria Appeal, please click here
