The will to survive cannot be stopped, no matter how difficult the circumstances are"
With this sentence, Mr. Shukri opened his speech, defying all difficulties and struggling in the face of the daily life.
Shukri did not complete his studies, but had to leave the school early when he was just 12 years old to help his family to provide the income; he worked for one of the best mechanics in the area and learned to disassemble and assemble the car engine on his own without any help.
In 2004, he opened his own workshop in Bustan Al-Basha area, he was just 30 years old at that time, and became famous in the area, as he reached a stage where he had more than 150 types of car engines, which he repairs and sells at the same time.
But the war knows no mercy, as with the entrance of armed groups into his area, they robbed the shop, including the tools and materials it contained, and Shukri became without work, in the hope that the war in the city would end.
During that period, he was forced to sell his car, for the sake of his family's livelihood, especially since he adopted the daughter of his relative, whose family was martyred as a result of the war, which increased his responsibilities.
He did not give up but returned forcefully to search for a new job and worked in a shop for 10 years, until the employer sold the shop and traveled abroad.
Now after being funded by the Hope Center, Shukri returned to work, but this time in his own shop to support his family.
