Warm Season’s Greetings to you and your loved ones. Let me take this opportunity to personally thank you on behalf of the children of Syria. Despite the enormous challenges, your support allowed millions of children to access safe water, education, health care, protection and other vital services. You made it all possible.
I want to seize this opportunity to also salute the resilience and steadfastness of these children who had to witness some of the most horrific acts of violence than any child. Yet they are brave and courageous. When I visited some of the schools in Homs and Aleppo, I was amazed to see the happiness the children get when they come to school. Their beautiful smiles light me up with hope. Every child I met have shared their hopes and dreams of becoming engineers, doctors and teachers. They dream of peace and bright future. Let’s stand in solidarity with the children of Syria and make their dreams a reality. We cannot let the children of Syria down.
I invite you to join us in reflecting on a few of the many highlights this year.
With best wishes
Representative, UNICEF Syria
