Emam, Jordan
‘Look around: everything is sharp, grey and hard in this refugee camp. This is not a place for a child. When I close my eyes, I imagine I am back in our garden in Syria.’
Emam fled Syria and now lives in Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan. ‘We had a beautiful garden. We had lemon, olive and fig trees. The air was heavy with the smell of flowers. I remember walking on the grass in the morning. It tickled my feet but also felt soft and comforting.'

"انظر حولك: كلّ ما یحیط بنا في مخیم اللاجئین ھو حاد ورمادي اللون وقاسٍ. ھذا لیس مكاناً مناسباً للأطفال. عندما أغمض عیني، أعود في مخیّلتي إلى حدیقتنا في سوریا." ھرب إمام من سوریا لیعیش الیوم في مخیم الزعتري للاجئین في الأردن. "كنّا نملك حدیقة رائعة الجمال تفترشھا أشجار اللیمون والزیتون والتین. أمّا الھواء فكان یعبق بأریج الزھور. ما زلت أتذكّر نزھتي الصباحیة على أعشاب الحدیقة التي كانت تداعب قدمي"
