Thanks to your donations, we were able to fund the creation of safe spaces across the area, which 4,000 children now attend. Two of the children impacted were Mahmoud and Salwa.
After the shock, both families were left devastated by the impact. Mahmoud and his family lived in a tent for two weeks until they felt safe enough to move back home.
They now attend our partners schooling program, regaining their childhoods and building a brighter future for themselves and their community.
Salwa said: 'I consider the summer school my second home. I feel very safe here. I am with my friends, which helps me forget about the earthquake.'
Mahmoud said: 'My favourite subject is maths. When I grow up I want to be an engineer so I can rebuild houses destroyed by earthquakes.'
