One of our employees is Ahmed, who was born in northern Iraq. Via Athens, Leeuwarden, and finally Eindhoven he arrived in Enschede. In Iraq, he always worked as an independent tailor.
‘Because of the war in Iraq, working became difficult at a certain moment. Do not forget: Iraq is not a poor country. However, because of the continuous bombardments and defective electricity, it was almost impossible to keep your business running.’
At Sheltersuit, Ahmed now has a paid position. He’s enjoying himself very much.
