Portugal: A Family of Cooks
Description: In 2012, Fatima fled their hometown Damascus after her husband was killed by regime forces. Unable to cross into Jordan with her two sons and daughters, the family went to Cairo, where they lived for three years, with the help of local Islamic charities. Fatima and her daughters did odd jobs sewing to top up their earnings and got by on food vouchers. But as political tensions worsened in Egypt, Fatima realised that her situation as a Syrian refugee, was precarious. In 2015, Fatima heard about the refugee resettlement programme to Europe. She saw it is the only way forward for her family. Now she and her two sons and daughters live in a suburb of Lisbon. They were introduced to a group of Portuguese entrepreneurs who decided to set up the project Păo Păo, to help integrate refugees by using their skills. In Fatima’s case, this was her delicious cooking. So far they have raised €15,000 and next month they hope their restaurant Mezze, will open. It will be a chance for Fatima to show off her culinary skills to a wider audience, whilst also providing her and her daughters with a regular income.

Dolls of hope in Lebanon (TRAILER)
Description: “Each doll holds the name of the person whose story it carries.” In April last year, the Mousalli family – a Lebanese father, Syrian mother, and their daughters Marianne and Melina – decided to bring the stories and dreams of Syrian mothers in war-torn Aleppo closer to the world. Through a relative who remains in Syria, they collect the stories of ordinary Syrians, then turn them into sketches and have them embroidered onto cotton dolls by Syrian refugee women. Entitled ‘The Ana Collection’ – the word ‘Ana’ means ‘me’ in Arabic – the project seeks to address the hidden pain of Syrians who remain inside a country ravaged by war, through art and self-expression.
