Safi is 9. He’s a Syrian refugee. “My school in Syria closed because of the war,” Safi told UNICEF. “An airplane dropped a barrel bomb on our school. I was hurt when they dropped another bomb and got shrapnel in my face and back.” Safi is healing from his injuries but his face still bears a scar, which he says frightens some of his friends. “They don’t want to play with me,” he says. Currently in Grade 2, Safi’s favourite subject is spelling. He dreams of becoming a doctor, he told us, so he can “help people who are affected by the war and save their lives.” #syria #unicef #unicefuk #childrenofsyria

48 hours until Eddie’s birthday!
If this man has ever made you laugh, cry, run a marathon, paint flags on your nails or helped you be proud of who YOU are, then we would love you to help us out.
This is the link to our fundraising page http://fundraise.unicef.org.uk/MyPage/Eddies-Bees
Please donate anything you can spare or post this link all over the internet!  We really, really want to raise £100 by Friday. If everyone could donate just £1 then we will be closer to our target!
Let’s give Eddie a great birthday surprise on Friday by tweeting him our page and showing him how much we support him!
By donating and sharing YOU will be saving lives and protecting the rights of children all across the world.
Also, if we hit £100 on Friday then I (Clair) will humiliate myself publicly by painting my face in Bee colours and posting it for all the world to see!
That’s got to be worth £1, right?! ;)

Children learn Arabic at a UNICEF-supported kindergarten in Homs, Syria. Other lessons cover English and maths - as well as sport, music and dance. 

The conflict in Syria has been going on for almost three years now. Children hear fighting and shelling in the background of their lessons, while frequent electricity outages mean that children must wear jackets in order to stay warm in their classrooms.

Donate to our Syria children’s appeal - your support can help.

We demand access to #Yarmouk & all vulnerable civilians in #Syria. How much longer will they be left to suffer? http://thndr.it/1avqH2y
