Growing Up In A War Zone

Child Refugees

We meet 9-year-old Judy who risked her life to go to school in Aleppo as it is bombarded by the Syrian government army who are fighting anti-government forces that control parts of Aleppo. We also travel to Lebanon and meet the children who escaped Syria to the safety of UNICEF refugee camps. But can they survive the harsh winter ahead?

I can not believe the risks they take to survive. Watching the battle for aleppo on the news and just thinking that Judy is right there in the middle of it, hope she is ok?

I watched the video of Judy with my mummy. I am 9 like Judy and think it would be terrible to live like that. Poor Judy. I hope the war ends now.
