I heard people talk about the tragedy that Mohammad the Syrian was living, but I never imagined it would be that bad. When you go into his house, you have to go down a few steps; he lives with his family in a basement underground. They don’t get any sunshine, and the smell of mold and humidity is unbearable. Moreover, the house is so warm that they cannot sleep, and in the winter it floods. The drains are always clogged, rats come out of them and roam the house. One even bit his young daughter and they had to rush her to the hospital. Mohammad and his family can’t move; rents are too expensive and his low salary prevent them from going anywhere else.
