'Flowers of the Future': Syrian Children in Idlib Province Return to School

Published October 4th, 2018 - 10:10 GMT

Syrian children dream of a brighter future.

All Syrian children who fled with their families from the northern countryside of Hama
are now back in school.

In the begining of October they returned to the makeshift school of "Zuhur al-Mustaqbal" in al-Jeneinah camp for displaced people in the village of Atme, in Syria's mostly rebel-held northern Idlib province.

They hold their books and wait in the line happy to attend the first class at the makeshift school. But the future remains uncertain.
