Jim Lommasson / What We Carried

Zahra AlKaabi:

When I left my country Iraq in 2000, I left everything behind, my photos, my personal stuff, my memories because I just wanted to forget everything about my life but the only thing that I couldn’t leave behind was my faith. This is our Holy book “Qura’an.” I wanted to have it with me all the time so I can get protection and guidance for my family during this uncertain Journey.
