I Can Smile Again!

A Syrian refugee family of eight had been living in one room of a rundown apartment with two other refugee families. It was a difficult situation as all had to share the same kitchen and bathrooms. Subsequently conflicts arose. Their room in which they resided was about four meters by four meters, a mother with seven children. Thanks to the sponsorship of friends from abroad (Edinburgh Cares / World Cares), we were able to find them a small two bedroom apartment in a nearby area, where they could at least have a place to stay on their own. Photos: Talal setting up the kitchen for refugee widow with six children. The youngest daughter is so happy to have her own house. Syrian children can be especilly vulnerable. She broke out in tears recently when she had to go back and visit her previous home.
