Syrian Refugee Sets Up Bird Business in Za’atari Camp
This video was produced by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and is titled ‘The Birdman of Za’atari.’ The video focuses on the story of Ayman, a Syrian refugee running a bird business in Za’atari refugee camp, Jordan. The UNHCR notes that:“The war in Syria took many things from Ayman, but it was the loss of his beloved songbirds that saddened him the most. Now, away from the bombs and bullets, he is back in the breeding business, selling birds at Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp. Sometimes, with the help of his children, Ayman lets the birds out of their cages to spread their wings. It is a freedom that he, his family and over 2 million other Syrian refugees can only dream of for now.” Credit: YouTube\UNHCR
