A Syrian Family Arrives At Zaatari (3)


Heba is 11 years old and lives in Zaatari camp with her family. Standing in the entrance of her father’s makeshift corner store next to their tent in Zaatari, Heba tells WFP that she wants to work as a policymaker when she grows up. “My siblings are younger than me and I need to take care of them. I want  to help make the rules so I can be sure that they can grow up in a safe place and become whatever they dream of,” she said. For an 11 year old, Heba is far beyond her time.
