Fewaz fled Syria with his family over two years ago. He was turned back at the Greek Turkish border six times before he eventually entered Greece via Evros River. He and his family lived for one year in Athens before he decided to try to leave the country. His status as a refugee in a country where he doesn´t speak the language, lack of work and health care for his family, as well as hostility towards refugees were just some of the reasons behind his decision. Fewaz paid smugglers to get his family overland to Northern Europe, but at the border with Macedonia the smugglers left Fewaz and his son Malak behind. Unable to raise funds to try again, Fewaz and his son are now stuck in Athens, living in the hope that they will one day be reunited with the rest of their family, who eventually made it to Germany.
