Blog: Reema, 12, Syrian refugee: "My last day at home"

Reema is a 12-year old girl who had to flee her country, Syria, with her parents and siblings. They found refuge in Lebanon. That was a year ago.

Reema was a bright student and loved studying, but she hasn't been able to go to school since she left her country. She still enjoys writing and drawing, to tell her tragic story. Here below is one of her texts, in which she remembers her "last day at home" in Syria.

Oxfam's partner SAACID treats malnourished children in Somalia's capital Mogadishu.

“My son Ahmed has been sick for five months, but he became very weak in the last month. I really don’t know exactly what is wrong with him, but I think the problem is linked to hunger. This nutrition center is extremely important for us. Without it, hundreds of children would have already died from malnutrition.”
