Since the eruption of ethnic violence in 2005, many families from around Iraq have moved to the safe and stable region of Iraqi Kurdistan.  To support themselves and their families in the south, they work as manual laborers, making between 10,000 and 30,000 IQD on the days they are lucky enough to work.  With limited income, they are forced to live in run down grimy hotels, but regardless of these conditions, they live in the hope of improving their lives.
