HOW SCHOOL STATIONARY ASSISTS HER AMBITIONS
SHAHED & AHED'S STORY:
THE FREEDOM TO PLAY AGAIN
Shahed and Ahed were forced to flee their home in Syria when it simply became too dangerous to stay. They are typical siblings - they love laughing and playing together - but in winter, in the extreme cold of their refugee camp, they were kept inside by their mother who feared they would get sick.
“We didn’t have winter coats before and it was so cold. I used to have to wear a blanket inside. I couldn’t go outside to play because I didn’t have a jacket. My mum wouldn’t let me because it was too cold and she thought I would get sick. But then I got my coat and now I can play outside all the time! I play hide and seek, I hide behind the caravan, over there, or sometimes inside” says Ahed.
The simple gift of a winter coat does more than simply keep a child warm and healthy, it allows them to play again, and reclaim their childhood.
