In January 2017, French photographer Philippe de Poulpiquet spent two weeks with HI’s teams in Jordan and Lebanon. Every day, they went out to visit Syrian refugees, including numerous victims of explosive weapons.

« Bombed » exhibition

This exhibition, supported by ECHO (the European Commission’s Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations) gives a voice to these civilians, whose lives were turned upside down in a few short moments. Their stories reflect a terrible reality shared by hundreds of thousands of Syrians since the beginning of the war in 2011.

Here is the online exhibition

Hope at Last: Malyun's Story in Kenya

Malyun, now 18, grew up in Somalia. At the age of five, she was playing with her friends in a field near her home when she swallowed an unknown metal fragment. She immediately fell to the ground. When her father came to her aid, he tried to hold her hand to make her stand, but her legs would not hold. The family sought medical treatment in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, but all treatments failed. They were then sent to Kenya for further specialist treatment. It was on arrival at the hospital that Malyun was diagnosed with lower limb paralysis.
