Syrian Children : 7 years of a genocide

7 years of war for Syrian Children, May, 12, 2018jpg.jpgSince 2011, schools are systematically bombed, despite international laws, and Syrian children dream to attend school.

The Safe School Declaration has been signed recently by some countries, but , in the  facts, Syrian kids have their only education at home. If they are lucky enough to have educated parents (or mother, in many cases), this is not a problem, but in the reality, their family is dismantled by the war : often , the father killed or disappeared, and the mother , unfit to be a teacher for her children.

We must add the fact of  forced displacement : many kids live in refugees camps, and have no support to learn.The UNICEF and the Red Crescent try to send furnitures in camps, but the precariousness is a real problem. Syrian Kids in Refugee Camp, May, 12, 2018.jpgSyrian kids, May, 10, 2018jpg

The case of Bana Alabed , who survived with  fantasy novels, is an exception.
