She seems very strong when talking with us: looking at goals and fighting against the obstacles... Her 4-years old son is with her. She brought nothing but him. Her husband was running a tile production factory together with his partner in Harasta region of Damascus, but sadly it was destroyed. They were suspected of helping the opposition. “One day the regime forces raided our factory and arrested my husband and his partner for 2 or 3 days. They broke the jaw of my husband’s partner and left my husband very weak and powerless.” Her husband tragically died a few days later due to the torture he was put through. She sold all her belongings to escape: family heirlooms, bracelets and even her wedding ring. She feels sorry for selling the ring that she was keeping as a memory. As she plays with the ring mark on her finger she asks herself: “I wonder who is wearing that ring now?”.
