When conflict tears apart communities, it’s not only lives that are lost but also hopes and dreams.
After nine years of ongoing conflict in Syria, millions of people have been displaced, many multiple times within Syria’s borders.
What’s more, over seven million men, women and children have fled to safety in neighbouring countries such as Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
When forced to flee their homes, families are sometimes separated from each other; in the worst cases, family members die. Many childhood dreams are shattered as roles and responsibilities within the family change.
