Along the way to the makeshift camp, Um Foaad has a lot to tell about her displacement from Dara’a governorate to Swaida five years ago. As soon as we arrived in her tent, she started distributing the winter clothes, provided by SARC, to her grandchildren without forgetting to dedicate some for orphans. She believes that providing assistance is a humanitarian duty and kind of sharing-joy during hard times. Um Foa’ad and many other families currently live in a camp in Salkhad town, where the SARC volunteers visit them and provide relief materials supported by ICRC and UNHCR.
