Abbie Trayler-Smith

Tinah, nr Qayyarah (Qayara), Iraq

Thana Abdulah, 42, with her children inside their tent in Tinah Camp. When ISIS came to their village Thana begged her husband not to join them, said she'd rather starve, but her voice was never going to be heard. Now he's dead, killed in the battle for Tikrit and she's on her own with 6 kids. She says: 'No one in the village liked ISIS, there was no support for them. There are two types of people, those that are Jihadis and join because they are convinced they will go to heaven and then there are those that join because of hunger, like my husband. Before ISIS came we were very happy but once they arrived so did poverty and hunger.'
