From the desk of Mike Parks, GHNI’s Director of Disaster Relief
Syrian women have grieved often for the sons and husbands who have been killed in the fighting or executed by forces on either side of the conflict. These women weep not only for their lost sons, but they weep for themselves and their daughters, too.
They fled in search of safety and shelter, but now they find themselves exposed to exploitation. This happens in dusty refugee camps in Jordan, Iraq, and Lebanon or overcrowded apartments in cities where the numbers of refugees grows every day.
