In Their Own Voices 2018

Stories from women on the frontlines of refugee response in Jordan. From Ahed Shishani: “Miss! I’m the pregnant woman you helped on that rainy day. I stood there for a very long time and you were the only one to help me, so I named my daughter after you.” I had to go back to the filing system in my head to reopen that closed file and update it with a happier ending. I walked away speechless with goosebumps, tears in my eyes, and a great sense of achievement came over me. I realized that my life was not as banal as it seems, and surely is worth living."
