Moureba is pictured here with her daughters and son in Al Marj, Lebanon on October 19, 2015. Moureba lived with her children in Jafar Monsour, Syria and fled in April of 2012: “Bombs were showering our village like rain. We had no chance to make it…we left for Lebanon.” She has not heard from her husband in over two years and is uncertain of his whereabouts.
Top three greatest needs: “Food, blankets and pillows. Fuel oil or wood to keep warm. We must pay for the local mini-market $1500 for food and bread and I would like to go to the doctor for a pain in my breast.”
Beyond sustainability, when asked, Moureba said she wishes she could afford clothes for her kids, furniture for her tent, to be able to put her kids in school (no one in the family has received any type of formal education in their lives), and to find a way to provide her eldest son with a wonderful wedding.
