Lebanon - Tripoli - Badiah, 51-year-old, comes from the neighborhood of Bab Drieb, in Homs. She arrived in Lebanon two months ago, after the army stormed into her house and arrested on of her sons. One of her sisters was so shocked by the event that she went into a coma and suffered brain damages. ?I am here in Lebanon only to treat my daughter?, she explains. Badiah has left her husband and two other sons in Homs, where they still live in their house, partially destroyed by the shellings. ?There is just one safe room remaining, they sleep and live there?
