War children of Syria – level 2
The war in Syria is now five years old, and people are finding out that it is affecting an entire generation of children. It is a serious problem.
These children know brutality, many are in poverty, many need emergency help, and few go to school. Some children have lost one of their parents, some have left Syria, and some live in dangerous conditions. People worry what will happen to these children as they grow up living through this war.
Difficult words: generation (a group of people born at a certain time), brutality (violence), poverty (being very poor).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
