I want to tell you about a project that is currently on the CanDo crowdfunding platform supporting children in Syria. Our local partner, Hurras, uses a magazine to teach children about how to protect themselves during bombings, educate them on their rights and explain why they often need to run and take shelter underground.
Over 40,000 children have already been educated and entertained by the Tayara Warak magazine, like 13-year-old Ahmed, who told us: “After I read about unexploded bombs in the magazine and how this could be dangerous, I understood why my family have prevented me from playing outside and in the farm.” We know it works. Now we're trying to help Hurras buy a printing press so that they can print and distribute copies to thousands more children.
