-Rida syRIAN refugee living in joRDAN “A barrier is something that prevents you from accessing something–– something you don’t have, something that you need. It can be a physical thing, but it can also be something abstract. It can be fear. For example, in Syria, fear of violence and the conflict. Here it can be fear of being harassed. Fear that my Children will be harassed or bullied on the street. That fear –– fear of being harassed.”
