Pamir is from Afghanistan. He is a Hazarah, an ethnic minority group in Afghanistan. The Taliban hates his people. Nearly every member of his family has bullet wounds and war scars. His father was shot during the Mujahedin War and still has bullets in his leg. His older brother is blind in one eye and is still in Iran. His other brother was shot in the head and killed somewhere between the age of thirteen and fifteen. They escaped to Iran from Afghanistan, but the police caught Pamir and took him to a camp. They told him he could either go fight in the war in Syria or they would drop him off on the border of Afghanistan. The family somehow got away and came to Oinofyata Refugee Camp in Greece. Pamir just wants to go somewhere safe and start a new life away from bloodshed and war. They have tents provided by the UN, but still await further aid.
