On the Ground: International Women’s Day

Hamda has always been a farmer, alongside her father and husband. She and her family lost their farmland during the war in Syria. When they were finally able to return, and Hamda once again saw a tractor on her land, she says she felt alive again. Here, Hamda harvests cotton from her field.
