Amina’s Story

Fleeing the violent conflict in Syria

Amina lived in Jaramana Palestinian Refugee Camp, near Damascus, Syria. She and seven family members fled a battle zone in Syria and endured a difficult and exhausting journey to cross the border into Lebanon, with only a few personal belongings.

The family found this unused shelter in Qasmiyeh Gathering, South Lebanon. (The Gatherings are home to the poorest Palestinian refugee communities in Lebanon).

Amina and her family live in one small room, they have no income, and their home has no kitchen and no running water or drainage. Please support our Syria Crisis Appeal and help us to provide support to families like Amina’s.
