When ISIS fighters came to Samson's street, his mom told her 10-year-old boy to run and hide.
"I watched them set fire to burn down our house," said Samson.
That night, Samson and his family fled from Syria to Jordan. To be safe. To try to hope again. Like 90% of refugees, Samson's family does not live in a refugee camp. They live "on their own" in the southern port city of Aqaba.
There are no jobs for refugees here. Not even permission to work. There's no safety net. No resources. Here, there are only the aftermaths of war – the memories, the aches, the fears, the hunger, the risks – things that don't go away when everything else has.
