For many young residents of the Shariya refugee camp in Northern Iraq, this is only life they have known. They were either born on the camp or were too young to remember the genocide that drove them from their homes in 2014.
When a horrific fire spread through the camp on June 4th, destroying the tents that housed 250 families, it was the first experience of trauma for many of these now homeless kids.
A CHANCE TO PLAY AGAIN
In the week after the fire, Springs of Hope Foundation staff were able to bring 25 homeless kids to our Hope Centre facility on the camp for a day of games, art, cartoons, play therapy and food.
Offering a space space, fun activities and nourishment can go a long way to re-building a sense of normalcy for children who have been through so much. We aim to provide as many of these services as possible in the days and weeks to come.
