According to the UN, more than half of 2.2 million Syrian refugees are children, with around 400,000 Syrian Children living in Lebanon. The Children are facing a catastrophic life in exile as they’re missing out on education, food, medical attention and are forced to work to provide for their families.

Here’s what two of the kids wished in this video:
“I hope that things go back to normal and that we can eat and drink, and that we can play with our friends.”

“We are under siege: I want meat. It’s been a year since we had any meat”

The funeral of 16 year old Mohammad Chaar, who was posing for a group “selfie” in front of the car moments that exploded in Starco, took place yesterday at the Khashoggi Mosque in Beirut. However, a brawl erupted when Grand Mufti Qabbani showed up at the mosque, and security forces had to intervene to take him out safely.

Whatever the reason is behind this brawl, it was a shameful act and a highly disrespectful one to the family and friends of the victim. The last thing they needed was someone turn their child’s funeral into a joke.

Here’s a nice [tribute] to Mohammad prepared by his friends.
