After the conflict in Syria forced Abu Goubran to flee his home, he settled in a rural area away from active fighting. That's where Mercy Corps helped connect him with a local landowner who gives him space and resources to do what he does best: grow beautiful, nutritious produce, like the harvest he shares with his granddaughter, Wia.
