“In the last campaign against Al-Ghouta, which was the most violent one, I wished all people outside al- #Ghouta to contact us and check on our situation. Although this was a very simple step, it meant a lot to us. I will never forget those who used to call me to ask about our situation, it drew smiles to our faces despite pain, sadness and misery.
Psychological support was very important to us. Their prayers empowered us and made us feel they had not forgotten those under bombing and dying a thousand times a day.”
Yusra, 40 years old, from #Hazeh
The people of #Daraa are now facing a very similar situation, and probably are at the moment having the same feelings.
