Queue for food in Yarmouk refugee camp, Damascus.

I am married with three children. When I saw this picture I thought, what if I were there? How would I cope with no food, no water, no shelter, no access to medicine? What if my husband had been killed and I had to fend for my children alone? How would I deal with all of this – and then on top have my period with no sanitary towels? Panic springs to mind…
