This is Mira, she's 50 years old and lives in Damascus, Syria. She is the only one of her family and friends that still lives in the war zone. Mira's got all of her friends keys and even though they have all left to seek refuge elsewhere, she keeps visiting their homes. To water the plants and, as the loneliness is starting to drive her mad, even to talk to the plants. –––––
#Womenofsyria tells the stories of real Syrian women. Not refugees, but the ones that stayed behind. The project uses illustrations instead of photos mainly because the women are afraid of being exposed to the regime of Assad.
Illustration Daily is promoting this project by publishing a story each day. read the blog post: http://www.illustrationdaily.com/blog?id=59
