I wanted to go back and take a picture


The first time I saw this old water fountain I was with my friend. We went there and we posed for photographs .

I wanted to go back and take a picture even though my friend isn’t here any more, he’s travelled to Turkey.

Lots of people travel now, that’s the situation.

I was in Syria and I had to leave, so it’s my situation too.


Ibo attends a centre run by Christian Aid’s local partner Mouvement Social, which provides a safe space for Syrian refugee and Lebanese children — many of whom are unable to access formal education. They give children like Ibo access to recreational, educational and psychological support. To donate to our Syria Crisis Appeal and to support vital work like this, please visit our website.
