After Rima's* daughter and sister were killed in an attack on the city where they lived in Syria, she and her family fled to neighbouring Jordan. They left almost everything behind, including the farm where they used to grow pistachios, olives and pineapples - and escaped with only a few clothes and their identity papers.
For the past nine years, Rima, her husband Kateb*, their five children, and her mother Iman* have been living as refugees in a tent in Jordan. With no way to work, it has been a struggle just to get by.
Rima attended production kitchen training where she learned new skills on how to market and sell traditional Syrian dishes like kubba (spiced meat pasties) in order to earn a small income to provide for her family.
