An Unstoppable Syrian Refugee

Mousa is a 92-year-old man who comes from Deraa, in the south of Syria. Since September 2012, he has been beating the odds.

That was the month his town suffered many bombardments, forcing Deraa’s inhabitants to seek refuge in underground shelters. One day, while he was trying to run to the closest shelter, Mousa fell and fractured his hip. He had a hip replacement operation, but without access to physical therapy to help him regain his strength and mobility, his ability to get around suffered.
