Good morning Beirut. I’ll be taking over @icrc_lebanon Instagram account for tje next days to tell you the stories of missing people and their beloved ones.
Ramzi left a mark on every one of his family members. He introduced Hala, his eldest sister to her husband. He also spent a lot of time with Nada, his youngest sister and used to always playfully wrestle with her to “toughen her up.”
“If he returns, I'd build him a house and tell him not to worry about anything but just be with us," Hala’s husband said. “I look at the door often and think to myself: Yalla, he’s coming in a bit,” Nada, Ramzi’s youngest sister said while staring at the front door.
This wraps up the takeover by renowned war photographer @patrickbaz ahead of the International Day of the Disappeared this August 30. He shared some photos and stories of families who had a loved one go #missing during the Lebanese war. Since the end of the war in 1990, the fate of thousands in #Lebanon remains unknown.
Thousands are missing, and thousands are missing them.
This is the story of Ramzi who has been missing since 1983. #goodmorningbeirutbypbz #pbzinbeirut #lebanon @afpservices
