Loyal to Home

Description

Yahia, 11, a Syrian refugee, tries to find enjoyment in his new home in Lebanon. The Syrian civil war has driven nearly 5 million people from Syria. The conflict has gone on for more than 6 years. 

“I love Lebanon, but I love Syria more,” Yahia says. There’s beauty in Lebanon – trees and flowers – but no people in his drawing from the present. 

In his picture from the past, Yahia plays ball with friends by his house in Syria. Years after the conflict that forced his family to flee, he still missing his home and friends. 

In the future, Yahia, a famous singer, holds a microphone and sings while others dance.
