Before and After War
World Vision U.S. President Rich Stearns met with children and families in a tent settlement in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon during October 2015. He brought back samples of children's art, drawn in simple strokes and bright colors but depicting the brutal reality they've faced.
“I want to show you some of the artwork that says everything from these children,” Rich said in a presentation at a staff chapel service. “We use a lot of art therapy — how do you feel about what’s happened? What can you draw? What (World Vision staff) asked them to do is on the left side of the page draw your life before the war. And on the right side of the page tell us about life after the war.”
“We did this in a couple of locations where we looked at their artwork, and it just shows you the trauma. Half of these (Syrian) refugees are children, and they’re living in horrid conditions.”
