INTRODUCTION  – “No Lost Generation”

As the crisis in Syria rages on an entire generation of children is being shaped by violence, displacement, and a persistent lack of opportunity.
UNHCR together with leading international humanitarian organisations have recently launched the ‘No Lost Generation’ campaign which builds on the latest evidence of the impact the crisis is having on children, not least diminished access to education and protection.

In support of the No Lost Generation campaign the non-profit organisations Human R. and The Fairy Play are looking at extending their Children’s Play[1] project, by creating 3 to 5 photographic compositions that will draw attention to the current situation and will highlight the importance in investing in the children’s future.

 

Let the Children Play at Zaatari REFUGEE Camp

The purpose of ‘Let the Children’s Play’ at the UNHCR Zaatari Refugee Camp is to create awareness and to help increase empathy and support for refugee children affected by the crisis in Syria.
Previously a stretch of desert, Zaatari is now accommodating the second largest refugee camp in the world. With more than 120,000 people living in Zaatari, the majority of registered Syrian refugees in Jordan are children and youth under the age of 18.

Considering its young demographic and raw desert environment, Zaatari refugee camp lends itself as a strong setting in which to compose five photographic scenarios that will put emphasis on the thousands of refugee children that are subjected to living in an unsafe environment, do not have access to education and are in desperate need of psychosocial support in order to help them through the trauma they have experienced. Working with the children and youth living in the camp, they will become pivotal characters in the final making of the pieces.
