The Syrian girl in the video...
« on: June 26, 2017, 12:06:44 PM »
This may have been covered before but..does anyone know of her status? Is anyone working to get her and her family out of that refugee camp to possibly come to the U.S.? Is there a way to help? It's almost like a modern day Anne Frank story in that emotionally I am invested in knowing of her future, in that her story doesn't end tragically. Thanks

“What is different [about photographers] is . . . the emotional connection they make. That is what I love about Giles’s photography. Looking at his images, we can feel what he feels. It’s clear that he connects deeply to the human condition of people from all over the world.”―Angelina Jolie

All profits obtained from the sale of this book will be donated to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN agency that protects the rights and well-being of refugees all over the world.

In October 2015, Giles Duley was commissioned by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to document the refugee crisis. Over the next seven months, he was to criss-cross Europe and the Middle East attempting to put a human face to one of the biggest humanitarian crises of our time.

Duley visited fourteen countries to tell the stories of individuals and families forced to flee their homes. He chronicled the turmoil of Lebanon, the camps of Jordan and Iraq, hellish scenes on the beaches of Lesvos and the refugees’ arrival in Germany.

Bringing together over 150 original photographs as well as texts by Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and Robert Del Naja from Massive Attack, this book captures how even in the midst of such horror and tragedy there is humour, the unexpected, and, above all, humanity.

Giles Duley is an award-winning photographer who has spent the last decade documenting the effects of conflict on civilians around the globe. In 2011, whilst covering the war in Afghanistan, he was severely injured by an improvised explosive device, but returned to work just eighteen months later. His photographs have been published worldwide in outlets such as Rolling Stone, GQ, The Observer, Sunday Times, and Vogue. He recently launched Legacy of War, a five-year project documenting post-conflict communities. He is a trustee for the NGO EMERGENCY and Ambassador for the landmine charity Find A Better Way.

The filmmaker's name is JR and he is from France. I am sure if you googled him you might find something. But donating to Syrian humanitarian agencies is probably your best bet.

I hate to be really crass, but when she walks in the video she has a certain 'hip sway'. I am gonna be bold and say she has a sexy walk.
