Syrian children from the school of the parish of Qaa ar-Rim. Most of them just arrived fleeing the battles from northern Syria, and many have lost some of their relatives.
Recorded during January - Feb 2014 when the population of Qaa there were in critical moments surrounded by Syrian rebels attacking the towns of Hermel and Qaa firing rockets. Qaa is the first village on the Lebanese border and has been linked since the beginning of the war because of the proximity of several battles like Al-Qussair a year ago or Yabroud and Qalamoun when these images were recorded (see the map)
“Most of the children had to walk for more than 15km under the bombing of Assad’s regime from Qusayr to Arsal, in Lebanon”, explains Friedrich Bokern, founder of Relief&Reconciliation.
