#10036 Syrian mother reunited with children she feared had drowned

10036

The Syrian mother, Manal, with her two children, thirteen-year-old Joudy, and eighteen-year-old Sarah, outside Central Station in Copenhagen, Denmark. They are on their way home to Manal’s flat in the suburb of the capital. Denmark.

Background: When Manal realized her life was in danger, she made a decision that no mother should have to make: she fled to safety in Denmark in December 2014, leaving her children behind.

There was too little time and money to organize the journey for all four of them, so Manal’s plan was to go it alone in the belief that they would be just a few steps behind her. It would be more than a year before she saw them again. The children were finally reunited with their mother in Denmark in November 2015.
