Title

Shams Al-Badry in a Saudi Refugee Camp

Description

This a picture of Shams Al-Badry, approximately age 2, being held by her mother (not pictured because she is not wearing a hijab). This photo was taken in their tent in the Iraqi refugee camp in Saudi Arabia.

Ms. Al-Badry said it was not the typical image from a refugee camp, because the tent had air-conditioning and other amenities. Ms. Al-Badry's family has moved many times, and her family has been unable to save many of their pictures from this time period. This photograph was given to her mother by a family in Michigan that has spent time at the same refugee camp.
