My name is Haroon and I’m 25 years old. I come from Lahore, the capital of Punjab province in Pakistan. I went to Turkey in 2014 to look for work, and then moved on to Germany in 2018. I spent two years working in a restaurant there to provide a better life for my family. I was away from home for such a long time. At the end of 2020 I decided to return to my family, though I was still worried about how I would support them.
Fortunately, I was helped by the Pakistani-German Facilitation and Reintegration Centre (PGFRC). I’m now self-employed as a driver for the Pakistani transport service Careem.
