Within an activity launched by SARC’s Lttakia branch, 156 children in Hutteen School were asked to draw their own world through a piece of paper, cotton, stars, hearts, and some black pieces.
The items suggested symbolic ideas, for instance the cotton refers to the good people and the stars refers to the beloved absent ones, while hearts refers to lovers. However, the plaster refers to bad people and the black pieces refers to the scary ones.
SARC’s Lattakia psychologist Alisar Jdeed said “This activity is aimed to help the child to identify those who love and support him and so to be able to ask for their help when in need. On the other hand, this activity can help the psychological support team to know the beloved characters and the scary ones to the child.
