The Children and War Foundation tries to do what it can to train group leaders who can help children inside Syria and in refugee camps in neighbouring countries. We know that if we teach children techniques to counteract posttraumatic reactions, it can make a difference.
While trying to reach more children we are in contact with professionals and others inside and outside of Syria and learn about the consequences of the war on children. Some of the stories and pictures we receive tear at our hearts and impress themselves on our minds. With permission we share a mail from Nasser, one of the dedicated people who try to do something for the children inside Syria. We have decided not to show the accompanying pictures of the dead children here on the website, but they vividly show how horrible war is for children. We can only imagine how such images imprint on the mind of children who survive but live through such “attacks” on all their senses. It is so good that people like Nasser work to help them.
