When Jamil first arrived in Istanbul in 2014, everything was new, different and intimidating. As a fourteen-year-old, it was a struggle to adjust and find ways to connect with people, so he spent a lot of time alone and in his room.

TOP LINE CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Khalaf and his wife and children are originally from Ar Raqqa ,Syria. When the war began, the family had to leave their town for four months due to ensuing violence. After returning home, other militant groups once again entered the area and took control. The family lived in a highly restricted environment and Khalaf constant- ly worried for his wife and children. Eventu- ally, in 2016, Khalaf made the decision to leave their home in Syria behind and they escaped to Turkey.
