Syria: Memories that lived through the earthquake
"This is what remains of the house of a family in Aleppo. We do not know the stories of its members. We did not find their pictures, nor anyone who knows what happened to them.
Nothing left of their traces except a cupboard of dishes that withstood the earthquake. Leaving us to imagine the family’s breakfast together, and the happy memories over one table."
"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. "
