Hesham’s friendly demeanor disguises the adversity he currently faces. Indeed, even though it’s a cold, wintery day in Amman, he appears unbothered by the cold weather, even though his is only wearing a lightweight shirt.
In Iraq, Hesham kept busy, working as a taxi driver, sometimes as a mechanic, and finding work in what he calls, "free business." He balanced his time between work, spending time with his wife and daughter and sports. In Jordan, he misses work and the ability to play sports. He spends a lot of time with his family, and he expresses deep gratitude for the food vouchers CRP provides all of them.
For Hesham, coming to CRP’s dominoes night is an escape from his boredom. He enjoys talking to the other men about the situation in Amman and, as he describes it, "what’s new and the news."
