Singing, physical activity, and artwork bring joy to Syrian refugee children who participate in a Child-Friendly Space.
Syrian refugee children start the day with songs and exercises at a Child-Friendly Space in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon. They sing at the top of their lungs in English and Arabic: “Good morning to you! I’m happy to see you.” They demonstrate their mastery of colors, numbers, and shapes by naming them in English, a skill they will need when they attend Lebanese schools.
With its spacious, clean, sunlit rooms and bright, colorful decorations, this World Vision Child-Friendly Space offers a stark contrast to the tent settlements and dreary housing where the Syrian refugee children live.
Please pray for the refugees, especially the children, that they will know peace and have opportunities to attend school and enjoy the fulness of life that God intended.
