Syria’s civil war has driven millions from their homes. In Northern Syria, more than 3 million forced migrants are struggling to live under harsh conditions in the safe zone near the Turkish border.
Faris Kanderis, 9, is one of thousands of Syrian children living through the sufferings and tribulations of the civil war from the day he was born to this day. 4 years ago, he and his family left their village near Aleppo after attacks by regime forces and took refuge in Azez.
It is now in the Al-Mehbbe camp, where 200 families live. ’ It’s very hard to live in a tent, it’s very cold in winter, it’s very hot in summer, ” says Faris, who is now used to camp life. “there are a lot of kids like me who have a great time with them. No one here wants to hurt us, I hope that one day we can return to our village again,’ he says, adding that ‘I couldn’t get out of the cold weather, rain and mud every winter. But now I’m not, I have a coat, a sweater, and boots. Now I can walk comfortably in the rain and snow..’’
