Sadad, is a Christian village in the west of Syria and a little town which experienced deadly clashes between 2013 and 2016. The occupation of the town and two terrorist attacks there has left an indelible mark on the memories of the inhabitants, who are physically exhausted and psychologically traumatized by war.
Today, the employment rate is very low and the village’s economic life has been severely affected. Sitting in front of their little stalls, men of all ages seem idle. Sadad fought against the invasion of jihadist terrorists and the destructive conflict they have lived through has not spared their houses and their churches.
Yet Sadad has always been a summer gathering place for all the inhabitants of Homs, Damascus and surrounding cities, a place where families who have moved to the city, return to, to visit their roots, their families in the countryside.
