Better Days

Description

In a Child-Friendly Space for Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Mona shared her feelings of loss and hope by drawing a picture of her past and future.

“The bright light of Syria went out suddenly, like a candle (right panel), says Mona. She drew herself in the center crying “because there were bombs and people died.” 

In the future (left panel), Mona is a confident, educated adult. “I want to be an Arabic teacher and to be happy,” she says.

Less than half of the school age Syrian children – both refugees and those in Syria – are in school. War and displacement will have a long lasting effect on their future.
