Hiba Kaka from Syria
“In Lebanon, we were often confronted with prejudice against Syrians.”
Hiba Kaka, her husband, and her two children lived in Lebanon as Syrian refugees. The family applied for admission through the Humanitäre Bundesprogramm (humanitarian admission program) and entered Germany in 2014. “In Lebanon, we were often confronted with prejudice against Syrians; for example, the idea that they take away living space and jobs,” explains Hiba Kaka about her difficult situation there. Her sister and parents did not have the chance to come to Germany through an admission program, and she had to leave them in Lebanon with a heavy heart. In 2015, however, her parents were allowed to come as well, through a humanitarian admission program.
“Where I live now, here in Germany, I feel really great!” says Hiba.
