Thanks for your support!
My name is Zozan. I am a Syrian woman who has sought refuge in Iraq to escape the raging conflict between ISIS and Kurdish militias in my home town in Syria.
I studied English Literature in Syria and graduated in 2010 to become a teacher in a Syrian secondary school, where I worked until I had to leave the country.
I now work with International Medical Corps to support women and children affected by mental health issues and gender-based violence.
I am joined by Julie Davidson, International Medical Corps' Assistant Country Director in Iraq, where we deliver health, mental health, youth programming and gender-based violence services to Syrian refugees.
After four years of ongoing conflict in Syria, 3.8 million people have fled to neighbouring Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey, most of them women and children. Find out what life is like for those forced to flee their homes and how Syrians are working with International Medical Corps to help others cope with the impact of war.
We look forward to hearing your questions. There may be occasional questions that we won't be able to answer to maintain the safety of others, but we will try our best to answer them all as far as possible.
