Syrian children take over Save the Children’s Social Media
Syrian children take over Save the Children’s Twitter and Facebook feeds
What’s it like to be a child refugee in the #Syria war?
Syrian children living in Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan will be taking over Save the Children’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds to tell their stories to mark the fifth anniversary of the war in Syria.
From the evening of the 15th until the morning of 17th March, Syrian children will be live streaming videos and images and answering questions about their lives.
We’ll be calling on the public to engage in the live content, asking questions of the children and sharing their stories using #ZaatariLive.
We’ll be live streaming from a kindergarten, an activity centre and from the bread distribution point.
Save the Children New Zealand CEO Heather Hayden says Syria’s children have been through so much:
“For the past five years their lives, homes and families have been ripped apart by war.
"With each passing day their hopes of a future are disappearing because of a senseless conflict they did nothing to start and because of the world’s failure to bring it to an end. This is their chance to tell their story in their own words, in their own way.”
