Farah Abd Latif, 10, and her fam­ily fled the con­flict in Syria and are now liv­ing in Jor­dan’s Zaatari refugee camp. When Farah was in Syria she wit­nessed the bomb­ing of her neigh­bour’s house – a fam­ily of seven, in­clud­ing four chil­dren who were her friends. All were killed. She didn’t speak for two weeks. Farah’s fam­ily are just one of thou­sands liv­ing in the seven square kilo­me­tre camp. The six-by-four me­tre con­tain­ers be­come their new homes, where whole fam­i­lies eat, sleep and pray to­gether.
