Assala’s story

Assala lives in a tent in an urban refugee camp on the outskirts of Amman, Jordan, with her husband Ahed and their 13-year-old son Naser. They fled from Syria 6 years ago to escape the bombings. Assala hasn’t seen her mother, or her sisters, since then.

In Syria, the family lived a good life. They owned a chicken farm and sold olive oil. But now, Ahed has a back injury and can’t work, so Assala has to pick up whatever work she can to help feed her family. The family depend entirely on her small income, and the food rations they’ve received thanks to the money raised through the Ration Challenge.
