11-year-old Huda was injured by a bomb blast near her home in Syria. Her family had to hide after the attack, and couldn't get to a hospital for nearly two days. Now a refugee in Jordan, Huda's message was simple: "I want the life I had back."
Huda is one of more than 120,000 Syrian refugees currently living in Jordan's Zaatari refugee camp. Last month, photographer Robert Fogarty traveled to the camp armed with felt-tip markers and a camera, aiming to make the refugees' voices heard. Fogarty asked them to write a message on their arms: something they wanted the world to know about their situation. Then he photographed them.
For three years, Fogarty has asked the subjects of his photographs to share one meaningful message with family, friends and strangers, for his ongoing project "Dear World"
