Iraq is often thought to be but a place of war and death by the rest of the world, Hamza set his mind on changing this stereotypical image on Iraq by spreading a message of peace for Iraq and Iraqis by walking the Camino de Santiago

Hamza is a young Iraqi man who left his country when he was just a teenager, he left the land yet his heart always remained back home and he always tried to convey a bright image about his homeland and his people to everyone he met.
