Why

In conflicts and struggles in general, compromises are accompanied by reconciliations thereby avoiding major issues, discussion of which stakeholders maintain would impede the political process.

The world has witnessed many wars and conflicts, and history has recognised that the open wounds of this war won’t be bandaged; because there is often one issue remaining unresolved.

The cruelty of wars is that it hides our beloved people and tries to get us used to their absence, because we feel the pain of this wound and know it, and because there someone is trying to keep this wound unresolved and open. Therefore we wanted to help to keep it in the light, so that people remember the wounds that have no voice.

Syria continues to live with the system of detention and suffers this every day. Detainees in the notorious prisons continue to suffer abuses, torture that violates human rights and values. The issue of detention remains the primary cause of long-lived disaster following the wars, due to enforced disappearances and ignorance of the fate of beloved ones.

This initiative starts with reviving the memory of detainees and the disappeared people, supporting their cause in all possible forums and platforms, supporting their families with legal services, and spreading the true story in a legitimate way to public opinion, in the knowledge of the extent of de facto rights that always deviate from the law.

For a mother who still waits for the return of her son or daughter at the door of time…

For a girl who dried her love in memory books waiting for her beloved to return…

For a daughter waiting for her father to come back, from his journey like they said, on a wooden horse…

For an innocent child arrested with his mother…

For the end of an agony which will not be finished by the smiles of warlords when they all win and shake hands…

We will continue to tell the tales that were woven by the fingerprints of tyrants.

For the sake of a people who do not want to live in an erased memory, the voice of the detainee and the disappeared should not fade away.
