More than half the schools in Syria are in areas of active conflict. At least 68 schools have been bombed, killing an estimated 160 children. Basma and her family fled their home in the capital of Damascus when war broke out.
I really loved my school back home, it was pretty, my teacher loved me and I had a lot of friends. I remember that we weren’t just studying but we were also playing all the time and did a lot of activities and sport.
