Sara's story | 40 Hour Famine | World Vision Australia
Description: Sara grew up safe and secure with her family in Syria. She loved her home and family. Spending her childhood playing with her barbies, and playing hide and seek with her brothers and sisters. But then her home was bombed. Sara was terrified that her family would never escape Syria. From a beautiful marble house, now destroyed in the bombings, Sara and her family have ended up in one of the refugee camps outside Syria. When Sara’s family fled, she took just two things with her, her photo album and her watch, a gift from her Dad. The photos could be those of any child from Australia –birthday cakes, smiling friends, brothers and sisters acting out skits and posing with cuddly toys. When you take up this year's 40 Hour Famine, you'll commit to living out of your backpack for 40 hours to raise funds for refugee and displaced children, like Sara.

Ukraine: When a bomb shelter becomes a part of daily life | UNICEF
Description: Meet 17-year-old Dasha, who lives in eastern Ukraine. Over three years of conflict has left her life in limbo but she is determined not to give up on her future. More than 200,000 children affected by the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine require urgent and sustained psychosocial support to address the trauma of living through more than three years of violence. Children should not have to live with the emotional scars from a conflict they had no part in creating. Last year, we reached children with psychosocial support through community protection centres, mobile teams and school-based social workers and psychologists, but the need for longer-term care is outpacing available resources.Learn more: http://uni.cf/2nQTOem Subscribe to UNICEF here: http://bit.ly/1ltTE3m The official UNICEF YouTube channel is your primary destination for the latest news updates from the frontline, documentaries, celebrity appeals, and more about our work to realize the rights of every child.
