Forced Migration and Disability
Abu Salih and his wife, another two sons, one daughter and three grandsons fled to Ankara from Aleppo in 2012. He lost his eldest son in Syrian civil war. His deceased son left him two small grandsons. On the top of it, Abu Salih suffers from muscle atrophy illness. I've visited him with two friends who were helping Syrians in Ankara since 2016. Abu Salih's family was listed as Family No.1. During our visit Abu Salih showed us his nice wheelchair from Red Crescent.
