Umm Umran, 41, sits on the pavement with her five children – Umran,16, Mohammed, 15, Ali, 11, Ala’a, 6, and Adidas, 4 – outside EKO gas station. The family have lived there since late March, waiting to join their father in Goldenstedt, Germany. Umm Umran spent more than $2,000 to cross from Turkey to Greece with her children after their home was bombed by the Assad regime in Daraa, Syria. The children want to go to school again. “I haven’t seen a classroom in two years,” says Mohammed. (Kelly Lynn Lunde)
