The women portrayed in the following photos come from different parts of Syria. All of them, from the eldest grandmother to the youngest child, have been touched in some way by the humanitarian crisis which is now entering its fifth year. Their stories are of loss, fear, relief at reaching safety after fleeing from danger, and of the innocence glimpsed in their children's smiles. Theirs are the stories of Syrian women everywhere. And all are united, too, in their strength and dignity in the face of great adversity.
