Description : The mother of the little girl is 17 years old. She came to the camp pregnant, with her two-year-old daughter. She had to give birth by C-section in Al Hassakeh, leaving her little girl to a random family in the camp. She lives in the camp for about three month. She was lucky enough to run into three childhood friends; now they live together in one tent and try to comfort each other.
