Here comes the plane!
Can you imagine a world without imagination? There probably would be no books, no art, no science, no inventions, no collaborations… And it all starts at a very young age! Neuroscience confirms that when you play by pretending to be something or someone else with young children, you’re actually helping to boost their brain at an age when they are making even more connections than adults. #EatPlayLove #EarlyMomentsMatter

“Please remember to stand up for someone’s rights — today, tomorrow and forever.” Powerful words by Basel, 11, who was forced to flee his home in #Syria. His family was the first to be resettled on #Canada’s Prince Edward Island. The brutal Syrian conflict has forced millions of families to flee to neighbouring countries and beyond.

Basel, 11, makes a huge snowball with other children on Prince Edward Island #Canada. Basel and his family were the first Syrian family to be resettled on the island. “Just take your very important things and put them in a small bag and come with us,” Basel’s father told him when they had to flee heavy fighting in Dara’a, #Syria." It was really fast and very sad,” says Basel. It has been nearly a year since the family arrived to the island. Basel was afraid to go to Canada at first, but now considers himself Canadian-Syrian and is proud to be in the country. #Photooftheweek UNICEF/UN045973/Gilbertson VII Photo
Syrian refugee Na'ama, 8, in the arms of her family in the #Jordan Valley. When the war reached their community Na’ama’s family fled their home where they worked as farmers. They now live in a tent in Jordan and do some work in the field but life is hard. The tent gets incredibly hot in the summer and freezing cold and wet during the winter. With our support, the three children are now attending a nearby Makani learning centre but Na’ama’s family still long for home.

Ongoing fighting throughout the whole of #SouthSudan means thousands of children are now living in UN camps for protection where they are finding ways to play. Here they are making a mud replica of a UN base, including soldiers and a watchtower in the Protection of Civilian camp in Bentiu. UNICEF/UN043962/Holt
As 2016 comes to an end,
