Lama responds to the question of what she finds most different about camp life in comparison to her home in Syria:
"The water is not the same... the bread is not the same, to be honest, you have good bread but may God help you with your water! Go taste our water and see for yourselves! In Syria you drink right out of the tap and the hose but here… God help you with your water."
The link between food, authentic tastes, memory and culture is well established, with bread frequently cited as the foundation of this phenomenon for many Syrian refugees.
