Vulnerable Syrian refugee children in Egypt live a life of misery, despair, and challenging school conditions. Plan International is trying to make quality education possible for some of them and improve their lives.
Sitting on the sands of the Mediterranean coast in Alexandria, Egypt on a June evening, 11-year-old Nada asks her mother if she will ever be able to see her father again and go back to her school in Syria. Her mother gives her hope:
“Yes of course, my dear, very soon,” her mother says.
The fact is that Syrian children like Nada may not be able to go back to their country any time in the near future. Syria's conflict rages on.
