When the bombs started falling near 31-year-old Ranim’s home in Syria, she drove her four children to her parents’ home, a few hours away. Her husband stayed behind to get their belongings in order.

Ranim and her husband thought her parents' town would be safer. But the bombings followed them. And it continued to follow the family until they were forced to flee the country.

Our new report, Everywhere the bombing followed us, features the testimonies of 205 Syrian refugees like Ranim and proves the long-term impact of bombing civilians. Read and share the stories of these strong, Syrian women refugees – their voices need to be heard.
