59 year old widow and housewife Hameda Ziad at her home in Al Saqalawiya. Hameda and her family lived under the occupation of so-called Islamic State (IS). After a year, in the midst of a battle, they fled the IS controlled area and at an Iraqi Security Force's screening point the men were separated from the women and children. Hameda and her children went on to a camp for Internally Displaced People (IDPs) but her son, Ahmed Sami, never joined them and they have not seen him since. Hameda stayed for 8 months in the IDP camp before their village was retaken by Iraqi Security Forces and they could return when they found their house looted. Living in Hameda's house now are her daughter-in-law, the wife of Ahmed, and her six children. In addition she is caring for two of her own daughters and their children. Hameda and her household are surviving on donations given by neighbours and well wishers.
