Children of Raqqa : smiles from above the rubble
Out of the rubble their smiles split the sky, their innocent looks defy all their destruction, and in their words we say here, from the womb of our child’s suffering, we feed every day of our love for our land, which our people taught us how to love.

The two children, Abdullah al-Yasin, 15, and 14-year-old Abdullah Marzouq, have been working in the industry for three years because they did not join or attend school for fear of being taken to training camps. They are now waiting for their school to reopen and complete their studies in which.
The stories of the children we read before they slept are now a daily life for children in Raqqa city. The trips of Sindbad became very simple in front of what the children of Raqqa had done in migration. Ali-Baba was facing forty thiefs, but the children of Raqqa encountered thousands of thieves and murderers from Daesh.
In every neighborhood of Raqqa city, children are playing cautiously in front of their homes waiting for the day they roam without fear of a mine here or an explosive device from there.
