Fadia refused to leave her war-torn country until the very last minute despite the violence ravaging her home city, the capital Damascus but she finally made the decision to go, pushed by her son who feared for her safety if the United States decided to launch military strikes against the regime. The charity center belongs to a Lebanese charity financed by Qatari benefactors. AFP PHOTO / ANWAR AMRO (Photo credit should read ANWAR AMRO/AFP/Getty Images)
