Lebanon, 2022

Raffi’s wife, son, and sister. Raffi’s family fled Syria together and is currently living in Lebanon.

Raffi spent several months trying to cross the border from Belarus into Poland en route to Germany. He was repeatedly forced back across the Polish border. After a dozen attempts, he managed to cross and reach Germany. He plans on bringing his family to Europe, and to have his son’s hearing treated in a German clinic.
