This week on War News Radio, we compile the most compelling stories that we’ve heard over the past year in our series, A Day in the Life.

First, we hear from Fuad Mufta, an Iraqi refugee in Syria, about his hopes for getting political asylum in the United States. Elise Garrity prepared this report.

Next, we speak with a refugee who found his way to the United Kingdom, but is now second-guessing his decision to leave. Listen now to this report.

We also talk with a garbage collector about his work. Ayub Nuri reports.

Then, we speak with a chef in Baghdad about his restaurant’s day to day operations. Listen now to this report.

Next, we hear from an Imam from the town of Hawija about his struggles to guide the faithful through difficult times. Listen now to this report.

Finally, we talk with a nurse in Kirkuk’s general hospital about how he treats victims of explosions. Listen now to this report.

These stories this week from War News Radio.
