It's outrageous and utterly exhausting to witness devastation in Syria on the news night after night. After six years of horror headlines, you can feel helpless and hopeless. But the children of Syria haven't given up hope.
They are determined to play, go to school and become the teachers, doctors and engineers who will rebuild a peaceful community.
That's why UNICEF runs Child Friendly Spaces.
They're safe and welcoming places for children in some of the world's most dangerous countries where they'll be supported to learn, socialise and play. A place to use the pencils, books and learning supplies they need to express themselves. A chance to get the psychosocial care to recover from the profound stress of war. A way to be supported by trained teachers who believe in them, help them develop their talents and look forward with confidence to the day they’ll rebuild a peaceful Syria.
Don't turn the news off, turn it around. Keep these Child Friendly Spaces running and support all of UNICEF's life-saving work for Syrian children by making a donation today.
