“War is the worst thing in the world because it robs children of their homes, family, toys and homeland”

The eyes of 23rd High School “Frederic Joliot Curie” ’s 1st graders speak louder than words when it comes to what they are feeling while watching the three “Unfairy tales” where protagonists are refugee and migrant children

And finding out these are actual human fates saddens them further. “Some children defined war as “cruel”, other as “unfair, scary”. There were some who said that war is “The worst thing in the world, because it robs children of their homes, families, toys and homeland”.

One children asked me how to address all presidents in the world in order to tell them to “stop the war in Syria immediately”, said Ms. Sofia Ilieva, a teacher, who dedicated one of her art lessons to the theme of compassion with refugee and migrant children.

We are sharing photos from the exciting lesson on humanity where children became wiser, tolerant and compassionate towards others children and are looking for a way to help them.

Their wish is for the children of Syria to have a home, friends and toys again!

Let’s show compassion towards the refugee and migrant children as every child deserves an act of humanity!
