Sara, 7, inside her tent. She comes from Jara La, Makhmour, and had to flee with her four brothers, four sisters and her parents when ISIS
occupied the city. They had to pay a smuggler 100 $ each to cross the checkpoint, where her nineteen-year-old sister was scolded,
despite the fact she was covered from head to feet, because her eyes were showing.
