Pictures from Syria

The Syrian refugees who have settled in Canada over the last year left a brutal civil war behind them.

With the help of Options Community Services Society, which works with families to help them get settled, we collected images drawn by some of the children whose families are now building new lives in Surrey, B.C.  

Each child drew one picture based on their memories from Syria and one picture of their new lives in British Columbia.

The picture above was drawn by Zainab, 11, from Idlib, Syria, and the next one is her younger brother Mahmoud's version of Canada.
