Lebanon - Jdeideh - Najiba, 63 years old, comes from the village of Soran, North of Hama. She arrived in Lebanon eleven months ago, after the first protests erupted in Hama. ?The Army was shooting at everyone, I remember seeing 50 or 60 people dead?. She now lives in a concrete shed, in an orchard on the outskirts of Jdeideh. In exchange of looking after the trees, she can stay for free. ?I would go back to Syria tomorrow, if it wasn't for the kids. I am very worried about their safety?, she explains, pointing at the four grandchildren she lives with.
