Refugee’s Regrets


Syrian refugee Heven looks out the window of the family’s tent at her children playing. Her greatest regret is that they aren’t in school.

“For three years we’ve lived in this camp in Lebanon. My children’s lives are destroyed. They don’t go to school; they go to work,” says Heven.

Her 13-year-old son Ali sells tissues on the street. He withstands hours of discomfort and harassment to contribute to the family’s upkeep in an informal tent settlement in the Bekaa Valley. 

“I pray every day,” says Heven. “I ask God to bring peace to Syria so we can go back and live a happy life.”
