Islahiye, Turkey, March 2014 – Two years ago 13-year old Susan, her mother and six siblings fled from the shelling in Aleppo for a safer life at the Islahiye refugee camp in Turkey.

She recalls, “We heard bombing. We got in a car and drove to get away, but the rockets followed us as we drove. It was very difficult and dangerous, and that’s why we decided to migrate to Turkey. We collected our belongings and left. We were brought to the Islahiye camp where they gave us a tent. Soon after we arrived they opened a school and we study there now. I am grateful for this school because it will help give us a better future”.
