Phone home – the call may save your life

The Syrian woman inside the tent at Al Zataari camp in northern Jordan was essentially alone. She held her two-year-old daughter in her arms but her husband, her parents, three sons and most of family were gone. Lost to the machines of war.

Standing in front of her I was feeling lost as well. Far from my own home, an individual inside an organisation steeped in humanitarian expertise, connected to skill but drifting away from relationships.
