When I was 10 years old, I was devastated by the disturbing news all over TV about wars in the region and innocent children getting killed or becoming homeless.
I felt guilty for having a safe comfortable home with a swimming pool and friends to play with and plenty of food and fruits.
I told my parents: is it fair for those kids to live such a horrible life for no mistake of their own? Shouldn’t they be going to school and playing?
I decided to do something.
My parents, neighbors, and community were very supportive. We collected clothes and toys to put a smile on a child’s face.
We shall not stop there.
Beyond material help, we wish to hold training workshops: drawing, painting, reading, math, music, yoga, chess, and others.
Let us hear about your stories. We all could help each in her own way.
