War children of Syria

War children of Syria

16-03-2016 07:00

The war in Syria is now five years old. Many Syrian children know only war. They do not know peace.

They are very poor and they need help. These children do not know about school.

Some children leave Syria with their families. They live in other places. Some have to stay in Syria.

People hope the ceasefire will keep going. The ceasefire will keep the children safe.

People worry about this generation of Syrian children. They worry what will happen to them when they grow up.

Difficult words: peace (the opposite of war), ceasefire (when people in a war agree not to fight), generation (people born at one time).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
