“There was no tool we could use to dig her a grave and we left her body laying there as it was”

It is always the face of children that makes human suffering so real. Could you imagine one of your students comforting his/her dying mother on the side of a mountain and then having to leave her there alone, unable to bury her? Would he or she be capable of taking over the responsibility of mother and father to younger siblings. The unspeakable suffering that these children experience at such a young age is unfathomable.  It is a miracle that so many of them survive to reach a refugee camp. What can we do to help them recover psychologically and emotionally from their traumatic experiences?
It is truly inspirational what is happening in many refugee camps all around the world.Below is just one example.
