Syrian Mothers Photography Book
With the aim of creating awareness among the people about the Syrian crisis and its consequences, Besme Group partnered with the Syrian League of Citizenship to launch the ‘Syrian Mothers’ photography book.
Having women as the target group and taking into consideration the UN Security Council Resolutions of 1325 and 2122, which emphasize the involvement of women in peace building and maintaining the security in conflict-affected zones, Besme Group and Syrian League for Citizenship (SL4C) collaborated to publish a photography book which included 35 photographs of Syrian mothers along with their stories.
These women were selected from different locations; some were residing in Syria and others outside the country. The book portrayed – via photographs and interviews – the pain these mothers went through. It paved the way to document the effects of the Syrian war on women.
