On Friday, more than 11,000 refugees fled Syria in a single day. Today we present photographer Matilde Gattoni’s portraits of the swallows of Syria, female refugees seeking safety in Lebanon from the violence of their homeland.

Pictured: Rasha, 27, from Soran Jdeideh. Aside from her husband and two children, all of Rasha’s family is still in Syria, including a brother who is serving in the Army. She is concerned he might get killed by the Free Syrian Army in her village. “As a Syrian, personally, I don’t know what freedom is,” she said. She does not want to return to Syria.
