Kinda Hibrawi creating positive memories for refugee kids

Many young Syrians have lost everything: their home, their normal life, their friends and often even family members. Their memories of screams, gunshots and bombs exploding are stored deep down. A lot of these children and young people are seriously traumatized. Experts already speak of a "lost generation". But Kinda Hibrawi doesn't want to give up on this generation. The US artist has Syrian roots herself. As the education Director of Karam Foundation she organizes camps for Syrian refugee children. She wants to inspire them with art and photography, creative writing, painting and sports. In an interview she tells us what she wants to accomplish over the long term with her "Zeitouna" project.
