Once the fighting got too bad, Rasha and her family had no choice but to leave Homs. Living in Homs, she was used to a comfortable life with a good job, nice home, and family close by. But eventually, Rasha was forced to leave it all behind and start over in Damascus.
After settling in Damascus, Rasha found a job with IOCC helping other displaced Syrians find safe shelter, access to food, clothing, water, and healthcare; “the job gave me purpose,” she said.
