Over the past decades, many Palestine refugees have fled to Syria to escape the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
However, with the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, these Palestine refugees in Syria were also forced to start a new round of flight. Ryan’s mother and daughter are the epitome of these refugees.
Ryan’s mother and daughter are Palestine refugees in Syria who came to Syria from Palestine in order to escape the war and seek a relatively stable life. Unexpectedly, when the Syrian Civil War broke out in 2011, the Ryans began a new round of escape.
Ryan’s mother and daughter are currently living in the transitional apartment provided by the Syrian government, which is full of traces of war and full of holes. The house often loses power and is cold. At night, Ryan’s daughter Aya wants to study in the dark.
Although the room is dilapidated, it is a refuge for both their mother and daughter. Because they can’t afford to rent a house, a monthly pension of 27,000 Syrian pounds (about 22$) is the only source of income for Ryan’s mother and daughter.
But once the transition period is over, Ryan’s mother and daughter can’t stay in this apartment again. They will face the situation of being on the street again.
For refugees like Ryan’s mother and daughter who have been wandering for almost all their lives, home has become the most distant dream in their hearts. ( Chief Taiwan reporter Zhu Xuesong)
