When ISIS captured Layla's village and began slaughtering its people, she and her family fled.
Since 2014, she has kept on the move, sleeping wherever she can. Now ISIS have left and she can finally return home.
As fighting increased in Mosul and people fled the city, Andy was commissioned by Oxfam to travel to Iraq and seek out stories that were indicative of the situation in the country and how it was affecting lives on a human level.
The trip was one of the most challenging yet rewarding that he has ever undertaken. The unlimited warmth, resilience and positivity of the Iraqi people has stayed with Andy ever since, so much so that he plans to return in the near future to shoot a feature documentary there.
