Abbas, 19, from Herat, Afghanistan

My parents were killed in the war in Afghanistan and I have no brothers and sisters, so I fled alone. Herat, my hometown, is a beautiful city with a nice park and the famous Minars. But now there are Taliban everywhere. War, war, war … When Afghanistan is safe, I hope I can go back again.

In Afghanistan I worked at the American Academy. I hope I can get some education here and work as construction worker.
