Children’s Day Celebration

On November 20, which marks Children's Day, CDO in cooperation with UNHCR celebrated the occasion in Sulaymaniyah. The CDO staffs accompanied 40 Syrian children, among them disables, to cinema and watched an animation movie

After the movie, the staffs took several pictures to share this great memory with the Syrian pure world of childhood. The children, including their parents, showed their gladness and indicated their willingness to repeat the same activity often. 

Through sharing sympathy and harmony, CDO seeks to provide a suitable environment for children to make them feel like they are home and there is no difference between them and host community.

Several media channels, including the worldwide famous ones, such as Al-Jazeera and Associated Press which works on behalf of CNN, BBC and some other international channels, accompanied the teams and the children from the beginning till the end.

Children's day is recognized on various days in many places around the world. It celebrates children globally. CDO each year celebrates the occasion for vulnerable children such as IDPs and refugees.
