"Roya has only ever known war and displacement"

“Her name is Roya, which means ‘vision’. She was born in Syria. While I was giving birth to her, the hospital was being shelled at the same time.

I walked to the Lebanese border with her and my other youngest child. We arrived in Lebanon and now live here in Al Aoudi Refugee Camp. My eldest sons had to cross the mountains to get here.

Roya has only ever known war and displacement”

Syrian mother, speaking to Interpal’s women’s delegation in Al Aoudi Refugee Camp in Lebanon.
