Iraq is recovering from the ISIS-war (ISIS – Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). Children, the most vulnerable victims, are becoming peace warriors. They can’t make a protest march, but they have another weapon – peace messages. Iraqi children passed their messages through drawings to kids in other countries.
The activity was held on Monday, 7th October 2019, in the community center in Al-Akhaa neighborhood, east of Mosul.
Our special guest, American nurse Leana, is an ambassador of peace messages. The first time, she visited Al-Akhaa in 2017, just after the ISIS-war.
The children were glad to meet Leana. They played games, discovered other countries’ highlights and drew pictures, which will head to children of the USA, Afganistan, and Syria.
