—Children at the SOS Village in Damascus were asked to draw answers to a simple question: what do you wish for in 2017?
The children at the SOS Village were all in need of parental care before moving in with an SOS Family. Some have lost their families in the war; others have been separated from them.
“I wish to have my own home with a very beautiful garden around it.”
“I wish the war ends in Syria; we will have a party to celebrate peace.”
