(Concern Worldwide) – In the lead-up to World Refugee Day, this Friday, June 20th, Concern Worldwide invited Syrian refugee children living in informal settlements and collective centers in Lebanon to illustrate what it is like to be a refugee and live away from home. They shared, through simple means, the impact of the crisis on them, and their fears and hopes. Amira, 11, a child living in a collective center in Kherbet Dawoud, a hillside community in Akkar, the poorest and northernmost district in Lebanon, drew a broken heart. “It’s became I have left you, Homs,” she says. With the war now in its fourth year and no end of the violence in sight, Syria continues to hemorrhage people across its borders. Half of them are children. Their childhood robbed by war, Syria’s youth have been uprooted from their homes, forced to quit school, and to live amidst poverty and insecurity. Many have lost parents, brothers, sisters, and friends and have witnessed indescribable atrocities.
