One of the most prominent artistic and literary works was the producing of the book “Just Married” by “Felix Braiseir”, who is a French director and artist who volunteered with SB in 2017 as a teacher, and during that period this book was produced. The book contains stories of women and girls who married early marriage to describe their suffering in this matter.
This book was published after the approval of the owners of the stories, but under fictitious names to preserve the confidentiality and privacy of the owners of the stories.

This journal includes posts from refugees themselves from drawings and writings expressing their condition and conveying their feelings https://www.sboverseas.org/category/refugee-journal/
