Syria: Memories that lived through the earthquake
"Susan holds a picture of her son Suleiman on her phone. Sulieman was sleeping next to his mother when the earthquake struck.
Suleiman would have completed his second year on the past eighteenth of February, but he breathed his last one on the 6th of last February, next to his mother Susan."
"Syrians have been struggling for over a decade to cling to what little hope they had of moving forward with their lives. The country's infrastructure has crumbled, leaving millions of Syrians with limited access to clean water, electricity, education, and all sorts of services needed in daily life. The earthquake struck and more lives were lost. It caused more damage to the infrastructure in Syria, leaving Syrians with memories that lived through the earthquake and a future that cannot get any vaguer. "
