Where the war still echoes

A documentary about Syrian refugees

Selim and Leila were farmers in Dera'a, southwest Syria, until the day their village was shelled by government forces and they decided to leave the country.
This entailed a terrifying nighttime journey on foot through government-held territory, escorted by the Free Syrian Army. To keep the children quiet and avoid detection, they gave them sleeping pills. Many of their relatives are still stuck in Syria.

Where the war still echoes follows the family over the course of a year, from their arrival in December 2012. The series provides an intimate view of their struggles to adjust to camp life and the traumatic effects of the conflict back home.

I believe that by working together, sharing our stories, and becoming family, we truly can live in peace.

Peace is very important because without it nothing can be done. The peace of women will help them involve in every aspect of development.
