Taiba is a widow with five children. She used to run a business with her husband in the Golan Heights, Syria. When the war first began, they would hear news of the conflict in other parts of Syria. They could sometimes hear bombs in the distance, but they never thought the conflict would impact them.
One day, her husband left home to buy bread in a different village where he went missing. To this day, she has no idea what happened to him. For the safety of her children, especially her vulnerable daughters, she was forced to flee Syria.
Now Taiba is the sole guardian of five young children, all of whom are dependent on charity for the most basic supplies like blankets and coats to protect them from the snow, and a stove to warm the tent they call home.
Without nutritious food, thick blankets, and winter clothes to shield them from the bitter cold, her children could have died or become seriously ill.
