Hamza from Syria watching Bamse og Kylling, ( The Teddy Bear and the Chicken) a popular Danish TV series for children. He loved watching the series, and was laughing several times though he did not understand the word. Actually he got a bit annoyed, when I had to leave.
Hamza lives in a squat for refugees in Athen. Together with his parents and his two month old baby brother, he has now lived for three month in a tent in a classroom in the old school with the beautiful name Jasmin.
Now it is still warm in Athen, but Hamza is afraid of the coming winter. At night he only have blankets to cover his body and there is no heating in the school. Before he was sleeping on a blanket on the stone floor, but now some kind people have donated mattresses for him, his family and the 400 Syrian refugees living in the school.
Hamza is a strong little boy. He has not been ill yet, though everybody else in the squat are ill. At the moment everybody are coughing, having a sore throats and a fever. He hopes that he will stay strong the whole winter.
Hamza doesn’t know, how long he has to live in the squat. His parents wants to go to another European country, but they do not know, if they are ever allowed. Sometimes his parents get really depressed with their situation – they feel, they are living in a limbo, not knowing their future.
All they want is that Hamza and his baby brother one day can to go to school and have a good life – without fearing bombs and ISIs and the cold winters.
