Funds raised from the sale of limited edition prints go to support Syrian refugees living in Zaatari camp through Save the Children International's programs on the ground.
11 The Shampoo
What is commonplace becomes special in Zaatari. Water is scarce. Shampoo is scarce. Washing hair is a communal event amongst the children, a rare expression of unadulterated happiness. It reminds us adults of the joys of the simplest things, and in doing so becomes another gift to us from Zaatari. Another of a thousand gifts, each one outweighing anything that we on the other side of the fence can give to them.
