LIMBO TO LIBERATION

The ongoing war in Syria has continually caused havoc in the lives of Syrians; over the past decade, thousands of Syrians have lost their lives, families, homes and any hope for a better future. Due to the large number of Syrians seeking refuge, they are not immediately welcomed into the neighboring countries. Instead they are taken to refugee camps where they would have to wait for authorization of their refugee status. Escaping a war struck country is a traumatic experience in itself but the deteriorating conditions of the existing refugee camps cause more harm than benefit to the refugees. The refugees remain in this state of “limbo” for prolonged periods of time, they are rescued from one rescued from one hostile environment and put into another. The design intervention proposes a system for the uneducated or unskilled population, that would through the refugee camp promote growth and stability of the refugees
