Yesterday at a Damascus primary school, children of Syria sang, danced and played during an interactive edutainment show, jointly organised by UNICEF and UNRWA.

As part of the show, children watched a play on oral hygiene starring grandmother “Farah”. Just as her name means “joy”, grandmother “Farah” brings joy to education on healthy behavioural change. Grandmother Farah is a standard character UNICEF created to support #childrenofsyria to practise a healthy and empowered lifestyle through fun and entertaining educational messaging.

In a protracted crisis situation such as the Syrian conflict, behaviours important for basic child wellbeing can be overlooked and deprioritised. This show marks the beginning of a series of events organised by UNICEF to promote often overlooked important health, educational and protection practices among vulnerable #childrenofsyria. These include disease prevention through hygiene and immunisation, getting children back to school, mine-risk education, raising awareness against child marriage and sexual abuse.

Thanks to the Canadian Government and other donors, UNICEF continues to develop programmes targeting vulnerable children in Syria with enhanced opportunities for education, protection and life skills as part of the No Lost Generation initiative.
