These are kids too, living on the border of Syria and Lebanon

The number of children displaced by war continue to occur and these children have been born and raised in refugee camps for the past 6 years. They are the survivors of a system they did not endorse or create. They are “schooled” “housed”and “cared” for pretty much on their own with only their mothers and some men to provide. If they are healthy they live longer, if not they have to make do. Yet, they play like all kids, they laugh, they joke, they wonder, and they embrace.  Nov 2016
