Ghazaleh is a Syrian refugee living in Amman, Jordan, with her husband and children. Their first days in the country were spent in Azraq refugee camp, but they were transferred to accommodations in the country’s capital when Ghazaleh’s health began to deteriorate. But even after leaving the camp, the family is still struggling to get by.
The mother of five is no stranger to adversity, having escaped war in her home country in 2014 and endured a dangerous journey from Syria to Jordan. At one point, Ghazaleh was stopped and beaten by regime soldiers, leaving the bones in her foot completely shattered.
Even then it took 18 days to cross Jordan’s border, during which Ghazaleh could barely stand without experiencing debilitating pain.
