Shaha

Shaha

Shaha and her aunt Khadija stand before their tarp-tent in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. In Syria, Shaha attended school through the 6th grade, and used to work as a seamstress, however, due to the war and subsequent displacement, she’s unable to study and has yet to find work.

Shaha lived in the countryside of Al Raqqa. Her husband Mohammad worked as a porter. As the war escalated, her family experienced frequent bombings which soon turned into daily shellings and barrel bombs near her village. Food became scarce and prices were essentially unattainable. After five months of slow starvation, Shaha and her family fled to Lebanon.

When we asked Shaha about her wants and needs, she said she would love to obtain a sewing machine to start a business and provide for her family. She also listed food.
