Amara lives in the Saida shelter in Lebanon and she was a star student in SB OverSeas’ classes, until she no longer could come to school. She got married, pregnant, had a miscarriage and got pregnant again and had baby Amina. But she was just 13 years old.
Read her story as told through the words and illustrations of storyteller Félix Brassier.
Since the beginning of 2018, we have been bringing you our stories we hear from the ground about the practice of child marriage. This started when our chairperson visited Lebanon last September and was served a cup of tea by a child bride.
Since then, SB OverSeas has been determined to raise awareness on the subject. Click here to read the first comic in the series and also see our child marriage stories, publications and read about our panel events.
