Ik ben hier ongeveer 1 maand. We wonen niet alleen, hier op Samos, maar met 4 andere gezinnen.
Onze situatie is slecht en moeilijk. We hebben ons land achtergelaten, want we willen een beter leven. Ik wil naar een betere plek. Ik hoop dat de toekomst beter is

Dear girl from Syria,
I found your letter in Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands. I am a 27 year old woman from the Netherlands and I have worked several times as a volunteer on Lesbos and Samos. Thank you for writing your letter. I have thought some time about what to reply to your letter. I know a little bit what the situation is like there, but I cannot imagine what is like to live in the camp. I am sure it is very hard for you and your family. Do you have a big family? And how is the situation now you have been on Samos for some time? I know life is very hard there. But I know also some good things where happening there: for example people trying to learn new things, like languages, and helping each other. I hope you may experience these things as well, and that they may create some hope in your situation. I hope the future will be good for you and your family, and you can go somewhere to have a better life than you had in Syria and you have now in Greece. I saw in your letter that you are twenty one years old. That is still very young. Do not lose your dreams.
I wish you all the best,
kind regards from the Netherlands,
