Education: A Powerful Weapon

For the past three years, Hanan and Omar Al-Ahmad have lived in Fayda, a refugee settlement in east Lebanon, with their six children. They fled the spiralling war in Syria in a gruelling day-long journey from Damascus to Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley during which they were detained and interrogated several times.

Ahmad and Harba Ibrahim live in the center of Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley with their nine children. They used to live in Syria in a home Ahmad built for his family, but as war raged through the country the family was forced to gather their belongings and flee to Lebanon.
