Shahed is 11 years old and comes from Raqqa. Her house was destroyed by troops of ISIS that’s why she moved to her best friend Ayah and her family for a while. But the situation become worse in Raqqa and finally both families had to flee. She is very glas that her best friend is staying in the same camp with her. On weekends Ayah works on the fields because she wants to become a doctor – and that’s very expensive. That’s why she can’t be here right now and Shahed shows both pictures.
Shahed has painted herself with her family in her garden back home. She and Ayah have played so often in this garden and she misses it a lot. Ayah painted her favorite tree in the garden, where many birds were living, which they always fed in the winter time. None of both girls wants to go back to Raqqa.
