When her home was destroyed by bombs and her husband was paralysed by snipers, Um Murad and her family fled to Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan. Um Murad left behind her wedding business in Syria, but she didn’t close shop. She did the exact opposite. To support her injured husband and six children, Um Murad opened a wedding shop in the camp with support from @refugees, offering dresses and beauty treatments to brides-to-be. In her first 13 months of business, Um Murad prepared more than 700 brides for their special day, proving that love is a force far stronger than bullets or borders.
