4 February 2015 – Ten year old Christina had to flee her home last August when fighting broke out in her village. She took what she could carry, and now lives in a tent with her family until she can eventually go home. UNICEF Iraq posted her story on Facebook as part of our efforts to highlight the plight of children in these very difficult times. The UNICEF Communications team printed out some of these posts and visited the same children to show them. When Christina saw her picture and received the printed page, her smile brightened the sunny day and she hung it in the middle of her tent for the whole family to see.
