More than 150 children (85 of them are Syrian refugees) participated in the joint event that was organised by the Tdh team in Burj Rahal public school (southern Lebanon), to celebrate Children's day (which is on March 22 in Lebanon). The children enjoyed the show that Tdh team presented, played a lot, received some gifts, and learned more about their rights and needs.
This event is one of many joint events that every social animator in the Tdh team is organising to facilitate the integration of Syrian refugee children in the hosting community.

The Qulayleh gathering shelter is one of ten shelters for Syrian refugees located in the south of Lebanon. We work there with more than 120 children and their families. We help them develop their skills and empower them to manage the risks related to child protection and gender-based violence. The Tdh team wanted to celebrate Mother's day (which is March 21 in Lebanon) with the children and organised a playful activity. We also distributed hygiene kits and raised awareness on hygiene and health.

WE'RE GETTING THERE! just need to finish that eye, the lips and the hair, and a few touch ups in some places, and the face is complete! Then i'll start working my way through the clothing - which i plan to layer on old rags and 'paint/age' those instead of wasting valuable time with the tedious job of just painting it, and it creates a multidimensional and 'realistic' effect - and the background which is haven't planned yet fingers crossed i get it done within the next couple of days and i can then go onto the next piece of my BOW (Body of Work)! // Hope you've had a lovely day! #childrenofsyria#war#artist#watercolour#waterblog#drawing#artwork#painting#illustration#acrylics#crafts#mixedmedia#canvas#easel#aquarelle#art
“I wish that I could do more to improve their lives”, said Yousef, a social animator in the Tdh team. Yousef works with children who sell thyme on the streets. He listens to their stories and gives them psychological support. Today, he helped them make beautiful drawings on cardboard dishes as gifts to celebrate Mother’s Day (which is on March 21 in Lebanon). In Southern Lebanon , we support more than 195 children who have to work. To protect them and help them go back to school, we are also in contact with their employers and their caregivers.
Orphans of #Aleppo, Syria. Two of the 74 orphaned and separated children who live at a UNICEF-supported home wait outside to catch their bus to school. As violence escalated over the past three years, Aleppo’s main #orphanage — The Islamic Charitable Home for Orphans — was damaged. Children were moved from location to location in search of safe shelter. By November 2016, as families fled and evacuated the eastern parts of the city, UNICEF identified more children who were unaccompanied – some of them too young to speak. There was an immediate need to create a safe haven for them, while tracing efforts to reunite them with family members continued. This is how the UNICEF-supported home came into existence. #childrenfirst#childrenofsyria#childrenunderattack UNICEF/UN056235/Al-Issa
Mohammed ha otto anni. Quando ne aveva cinque ha assistito, in #Siria, alla morte del padre per mano di un cecchino e ne è rimasto sconvolto.
Da quel giorno è cambiato. È diventato introverso, ha iniziato a balbettare, a bagnare il letto e ad essere molto aggressivo. La continua esposizione a eventi violenti e traumatici, infatti, ha effetti devastanti sulla salute mentale dei bambini. #ChildrenofSyria
