Mother Faten will never forget the moment the explosions ripped through the city of Beirut at 6.07pm on August 4.
"I was away from home, away from my
children. My first and only thought was
that my children must have been killed."
A single mother with three young children between the ages of four and 11, she works several cleaning jobs in order to earn money to provide for her family.
“I ran home as fast as I could. I felt my feet moving, but it was as if I was going nowhere.”
“When I finally got home and saw my children were unhurt, I couldn’t take my eyes off them.”
“My eldest daughter was pale and silent, my son wept, and my youngest daughter clung to me for the next three hours.”
