This year’s World Mental Health Day in Syria comes amid an escalation in bombing of civilians in the Aleppo and Idlib countryside, resulting in cases of panic and horror and a large displacement movement, and causing many psychological disorders among a large number of residents and displaced people fleeing the bombing.
This occasion is absent from many women in Syria, as women here barely have time to feed their children. They live the bitterness of oppression, displacement and death in conditions described as the catastrophe of the century. This was exacerbated by the earthquake that struck northern Syria and southern Turkey, as many families spend long nights without any form of temporary shelter in the cold and harsh living conditions, in the streets, under trees, and in makeshift tents.
The girl Maryam (11 years old), who was displaced from the village of Kansafra in the southern countryside of Idlib, did not hesitate to show her creativity in drawing, despite the difficult conditions that her family and her life are going through in Killi 3 camp, located in the northern countryside of Idlib.
The suffering of children in Syria is increasing day by day, due to displacement, lack of attention and employment, in addition to the visual impairment of some children. 90 percent of the visually impaired people in the world live in places where people suffer from low incomes, in addition to poor water quality and a lack of necessary sanitation facilities. In Syria, one may add the bitterness of displacement and the harshness of life.
