Another Day Lost, by Issam Kourbaj, is a series of installations scattered across London, inspired by and based upon Syrian refugee camps. The donations raised here will go to Syrian projects run by Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) and the U.N. Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
"I am counting the days since the uprising; it is more than 1500 days and I am counting the days since the uprising; it is more than 1500 days and I am still counting. My homeland, ‘the country formerly known as Syria’* is torn apart; its cities are turned to dust, millions of my fellow Syrian families, women and children are daily forced to flee this largest humanitarian crisis in the world.
Though life continues in refugee camps throughout the region, with the help of many generous organisations such as UNHCR and MSF and others, the displaced millions now bear a lasting trail of visible and invisible scars caused by the conflict, the separation from their homeland and the scars of permanent loss.
Over the last four years, I have witnessed from this painful distance the way these vulnerable human beings are waiting in makeshift shelters they call home, and I fear for their lives are on hold and many are becoming citizens of a tent."
