Tahar – مرح

Tahar – 25 years old – chose the word مرح (pronounced “Marah” and meaning “joy” in Arabic).

Whatever problems he might face in life, the joy that his family and friends bring to him makes his life beautiful.
Here in the slum everyone knows each-other, people go round to other people’s houses all the time for tea and long chats in the shade.
The wooden shacks and sandy ground paved with plastic bags and all sorts of rubbish give a sad impression at first sight. But you quickly realise how joyful and alive this place is with all the social interaction going in.
