After her family’s home was destroyed in Aleppo, six-year-old Safa fled to rural Damascus with her parents, grandmother and five sisters. While sheltering in an abandoned farmhouse the family was caught in an attack that left Safa gravely injured – she lost her right leg and suffered burns and shrapnel wounds.

Safa and her family now live in Za’atari refugee camp in northern Jordan. She attends one of the UNICEF supported schools every morning and a child friendly space in the afternoon. Life will never be the same for Safa or her family, but they are doing their best to regain some sort of normalcy.

This is a typical day for Safa in Za’atari camp.
