Syrian Refugee Family
This family fled the civil war in Homs, Syria in 2013. “Maram’s” husband is much older than her and he is very ill, therefore he is not able to work. Her oldest son, who is 17 years old, must provide for the family. Because of this he has not gone to school, but tries to find work as a day laborer. There are 5 children in the home ages 17, 16, 15, 10, and 7 years.
