Hello, I hope you will be well and healthy in light of this crisis, I am sending you a message in order to tell you about the sad situation of the refugee families here in the camps, in light of the Corona crisis that affected all the world and the refugees in particular, and we were one of those affected by this crisis and the one that was most affected by it.  Poor families of widowed and elderly women, for example, in the neighborhood that I live here, a woman who is over 60 years old, without children or husband, lives alone and has a physical handicap, half of her body is almost paralyzed, in addition to two women sisters, one of whom is widowed and has young children and the other is divorced and has an amputated leg.  Cases with a different situation in the neighborhood in which we live, so what do you think about a camp with a population of more than 10 thousand people with the decline of humanitarian support, many foodstuffs, such as what provides us with a liter of oil per person for a month, knowing that we cook every three meals a day and we need oil, so every  Including the same thing, lentils are a kilogram for a month and a kilo of sugar for a month, with the necessary needs of the person such as meat, eggs, many materials, clothes, etc. ... etc. In addition to the Corona situation, we have started in the war and you may imagine the situation how it will be in time of war.  Trouble matters more and the situation will be unbearably dire.  I do not know if this was in your program of work, but I know that you are working for humanity. We hope that you will provide as much help as you can please.

Dear Maglaha,

Your film work on peace is so important, and so beautifully done. With your reporting we can carry the information, working together for an end to all of these wars, speak out for what people living in refugee camps need, and for a way for all to return to live in a stable community in peace.
