Description : Sargon Yokhana, a weaver from Galak, a village in the northwest of Iraq, works hard at his loom.
He wants to preserve the form of weaving a special Kurdish fabric called "Surma", an art that has been passed down for generations.
The cash assistance that the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) provides to small business owners like him helps keep their work and their dreams alive.
