Tabish is from Afghanistan. He fled the country because he had enemies there. He was shot multiple times during a Taliban raid, resulting in a broken leg and damaged hand. The bullets had to be pulled out with a stick. He and his family fled Afghanistan to Iran where the police threatened to arrest him for not having the legal papers to work. His family escaped to Turkey but were soon deported back to Iran. They eventually made it through after walking on foot for seven hours at the Turkish border. After spending five hours on the water on the way to Greece, their boat shut down but was saved by the boat guard. They were then brought to the Oinofyta Refugee Camp.
Now his family is stuck with no money and no place to go. Tabish is sick and in pain because of his injuries and worries about his children's future. He has no choice but to wait and see what their fate will be.
