If Syria was a child
By Lara Ghaoui, Programme Development and Quality Assurance Manager, World Vision Lebanon (formerly Manager of World Vision's Syria refugee response).When I was a child, I grew up with Fairy Tales. Stories, I believed, all had happy endings.Today, after three consecutive years, the Syrian war continues. Lives are being taken, without asking for permission. Dreams are being smashed up and replaced by nightmares. Hopes are being squashed and replaced by despair. How long will the children suffer? Shouldn’t this war be over by now? When will there be a happy ending?
