Nawras, who played basketball for the Syrian national team before becoming a refugee, has found a new home in Bad Schallerbach, Austria. When they go shopping in the small Austrian town, Martina Schamberger introduces Nawras Ahmadook as her son. “I feel like he is my son,” said Martina with pride. “He accepts me, a bit different than his mother. He opens up to me a lot, like a friend too. We have been together seven months now and never had a big fight.”
