The traumas, the violence against women and education: the daily life inside a Syrian refugees camp


The war is always inside the gaze of those who are forced to escape. Cities suffer from damages, cultural places crippled, but for all of this both a destruction and a restoration is possible. Instead, as for people meeting any kind of conflict, they keep something forever.

The Iraqi Kurdish region is becoming an important border area. Here there are many Syrians, all together in refugee camps, that are safes, anonymous, timeless, where new births and new deaths occur, yet always on the lam. New refugee camps are growing in Iraqi Kurdistan. Some of these were only warehouses for the biggest camp: Domiz, managed by Kurdistan Regional Government and UNHCR. A wide valley covered with tents, separated from each other by narrow paths. Inside the hospital area of Domiz I notice a little ambulatory. There are three girls looking from the windows. They invite me to enter. There I meet a lawyer, a doctor and a psychologist.

Emergencies  transform what is necessary into something primitive: they neglect fundamental rights. The volunteers provide the food, give repair from cold weather, but where is the defense of trauma? In the camp many women are widows, others suffered rapes and violence. There are also women that bring the pain here. The young Syrians, that received me in the ambulatory, are happy to help their people. They belong to the Yasmine Women Social Center. The violence against the women are not only something from the past. This working group want to give assistance to those who live today with the guilt of their pains.

<<Women of this camp came here and started to ask for medical treatments as an excuse. Then they expressed their torments. They live in tent and sometimes this means a very close contact with family members that are not reassuring. They are frustrated and some of them recur to blows or rape>>.
