NIJAMEH (13) FROM EAST GHOUTA
'Recently Alia, Baraa and I went out at night together and we asked Allah if he could help us with money. And if he could end the war.'
For two years now I have lived together with my family in this camp, but I don't like it very much. In the winter the water comes into our tents and everything is soaked and dirty. And in the summer it is far too hot and there are very scary snakes slithering around. I am so very scared of them.
But still this camp is better than where we lived in Syria. We lived near Damascus and there were bombs being dropped on our neighborhood Ghouta. In one of the attacks my twin brother was killed. He was just playing outside at the wrong moment. I am still very sad about this; who does something like that?
I also have two older brothers but they have been missing for two years. They were probably kidnapped and are now working in the army of the Syrian regime. We don't know but we have never heard anything from them again. I miss all three of my brothers very much.
We gave our Facebook-friends the opportunity to be part of our conversations by posting questions. Nijameh answers the question of John: Do children still dream big dreams? And if so, what are those dreams? (39 sec)
