Some Syrian women refugees in Istanbul are trying to find their feet in a new
life to heal the wounds of war, displacement, and isolation --- one salad at a
Refugees often make the news when they die in masses or when they commit crimes
in their host countries, or if they win a massive prize. However, I believe that
theres a significant lack of coverage about what happens to those who are
neither criminals, nor famous heroes, but quietly contributing to their new
societies while coming into terms with their traumatic pasts.
The ongoing Syrian war is arguably one of the most vehement modern humanitarian
crisis. Several years ago, at the peak of the refugee flows into Europe, there
were countless reports about Syrians in media. However, fast-forward to 2020,
the medias obsession with the Syrians died down.
While millions of refugees resettled in peaceful countries, for many individuals,
another battle began: Economic hardship, discrimination, and linguistic barriers
that perpetuate this, as well as culture shock and isolation.
Thus, SALADS THAT HEAL explores what is it like to be a refugee in the mid-term
to shine some light on an issue almost forgotten by the Western media, but one
that's still affecting millions of people.
