As of June 2013, at least 70,000 Syrians have been killed and four million have been internally displaced due to the Syrian civil war. Some women have been ripped from their communities, landing in cities away from the ties that give them some kind of support and security. Others remain within their home communities, but without their husbands, often forced to live with their husband's families, where they are sometimes mistreated. They can even be forced into marriages not of their choosing. However, there is hope for these women.
