War Kids - A Syrian Story

See also

This is a story about the Syrian Civil War though the eyes of children. August 21st the first reports of the use of a chemical weapons was reported in Damascus, Syria. Within hours, dozens of images were on the television of distressed and visibly sick adults and children with no external signs of injury. In some of the most graphic footage, dozens of bodies – including many small children and babies – were seen laid out in rows on the floors of clinics and mosques. Over 1300 civilians, including at least 426 children, were killed.

The author of the book, Hayley Lawson had these thoughts: As I watched TV and folded up my laundry, an image of a young girl appeared. She was older than my daughter by a few years. The look of horror on her face clearly showed that she was in shock. She had been poisoned with nerve gas. The news reporter stated that the girl’s family had died in a chemical attack and that she was alone. The image of the child was burned into my mind.

What would happen to the girl next?

I was moved to tell her story and WAR KIDS was born.

Perks include signed soft cover and digital books.
