Description : Tamer: "I have two daughters and one son. I used to live in the old town in Homs before the crisis, and I used to work in repairing bicycles. It was fine.
Once the crisis started I went out of the old town with my family to Hamah. I stayed there and worked in copper to survive.
We returned to the old town in Homs when the road opened and I returned to my work here. It is different now to come back to your home, here is our home, there is no place more comfortable than one’s home.
I hope the county will come back better than before, I wish to extend my career by selling and buying bicycles."
