Last Friday, August 16th, Assad Regime and Russian airstrikes targeted our town in Idlib, Syria. Leinda and Ahmad, two former students, were playing together when their house was attacked, killing Ahmad and injuring Leinda.
Her English teacher describes how Leinda's face was always full of joy. It's heartbreaking to see her smile transformed into sadness.
We are grateful that Leinda survived this tragedy. She is in good care.
Ahmad was a student in the first class at the Wisdom House Kindergarten during the 2016-2017 school year.
Our prayers go out to Ahmad's family and loved ones.
We've temporarily suspended our programming as we continue to closely monitor the situation on the ground.
