Lebanon, 1 May, 2014 – By fleeing the conflict in Syria, refugee children may have escaped the physical dangers they faced back home, but they often come bearing invisible scars left by what they’ve witnessed. To help with this, UNICEF supports informal classes where refugee children can play and take part in activities in a friendly environment that encourages them to talk about their experiences. This way, along with partners we can make sure they get any extra psychological help they need.

Children in the Faida tented settlement in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, are able to go the informal classes thanks to support from the Kuwait Government, who have donated more than $16 million towards UNICEF Lebanon’s work with children of Syria.
