  • In Pictures: 'When we garden, we feel happy'

    "In the midst of an expanse of dry land, thousands of Syrian refugees have been living in Zaatari Camp, Jordan, opened two years ago. Some have turned to gardening to help them adapt to life in the camp and bring a bit of greenery to the desert landscape that has become their home. Mohammad Abu Farah, who works at Save the Children youth centre in Zaatari Camp, is providing gardening and landscaping lessons to children in the camp as a form of informal education and psychosocial support."

      I drove past those camps...it's heartbreaking to see the conditions the Syrian refugees are living in. I pray for peace in Syria and hope they will be able to go back to their homes soon.

            It is good to see that Syrian refugee are living under severe trauma of stress and depression as they face the prolonged insurgency in their homeland as due to that they are forced to live in refugee camps as some humanitarian organization working to take out children and kids from that kind of psychological and mental diseases as they provide them formal and informal education to these kids.
