Is it the silence then?
the most profound of every spoken words,
Is it the silence then?
that screams your defeat.
This is to the women who prefer to hide her scars. This is to the brave child who is fighting for his home. Speak Loudly. Speak for Yourself.

Alice Aedy (@aliceaedy) is a 23-year-old documentary photographer who spent much of 2016 on the front lines of the European refugee crisis, documenting camps in Greece, Serbia and France. Her work has been published in Vice and on the front page of The Guardian.
Alice is pictured here in Belgrade, Serbia where she was documenting an illegal settlement in a disused railway depot. She describes the scene: "two thousand predominantly-Afghan migrants were sleeping rough, burning scrap wood and plastic to stay warm in minus 17 degrees – conditions described as some of the worst in Europe in over a decade."

Aya’s father was arrested and beaten in front of her. She suffers from psychological trauma as a result of this experience. Aya, 7 years old, is now very anxious and afraid of men. She used to cry a lot, isolate herself from her peers, and she refused to go to school.
When the MECI Counselor visited Aya’s family and encouraged her to join the program, she initially refused, but after several visits she decided to attend.
As a new student, she used to be very shy, did not participate in any activities, and would not study. But with the support of her teachers and diligent follow-ups with her social worker, she is now a dedicated student who loves learning, especially in groups.
"For these are all our children. We will all profit by or pay for what they become"- James Baldwin........ From Past History to Present, our children continue to be martyred because we are never serious as nations and people about Peace. We have spent billions on the "war on terror" with little ROI, while buying and selling billions in arms to nations to create wars of terror, while our educations systems fail and poverty prevails world wide for far too many, with most of the effected and affected being children. As Our children cry for their lives to matter as much as anyone else's, and as we see dead children on our shores with families fleeing from the wars and inhumane systems that we collectively cause and turn our backs to- we maintain that they should go back to where they came from because our ultimate responsibility is to take care of our own, yet we keep wondering why our souls can never find peace and why the chickens keep coming home roost.
Ameen, 10-year-old Syrian student in Jerash, came to Jordan when he was 5 years old and arrived he was suffering from poor psychological conditions.
He didn’t attend a school when he first came to Jordan because his family did not have enough money.
The UNICEF-MECI program at Deir Al Gharbi school accepted Ameen and he started writing, reading, and gaining new friends.
Ameen is very happy because the UNICEF-MECI bus takes him to and from school for the program.
