The school bus cannot come to the neighborhood where Yakup Engin lives, leaving him and his kids no other choice but to walk six kilometers every day on foot in extreme cold.
Lack of public transport forces Yakup Engin to walk 6 kilometres with his kids every day to send his kids to school in Turkey’s eastern city of Mus.
The school bus cannot come to the neighbourhood where Engin lives, leaving him and his kids no other choice but to make the long journey on foot to the bus in extreme cold.
Engin has to carry some firewood along for making a fire to keep his kids warm.
Yakup Engin says, “after some of my kids get into the shuttle, I also bring 3 of my kids to a village where they study at a primary school.
“I will endure anything for my kids.”
