Meet My School! Rula and Leen from Syria

06 September 2017

Take a tour of Qalqilya Basic School in Damascus, Syria with Rula. Due to the ongoing conflict, children need a space that provide a sense of normalcy. Rula sees her UNRWA school as a safe place.

In Syria, six years of conflict have rendered over 70 per cent of UNRWA schools inoperative, due to damage to school infrastructure, access restrictions or the need for schools to be used as collective centres sheltering internally displaced persons.
