WorldVision have come up with the most amazing way of using the traditional Hallowe’en pumpkin as a symbol of hope for the children of Syria. Here’s what it says on their website:
“For most, Halloween is a night of excitement, friendly frights and safe scares. But for the children of Syria the fear is very real. And it’s every night of the year.
The Syrian civil war is in its fourth year, and has stolen the childhoods of millions of children. Children like Hani, 8, have seen unspeakable horrors. They have witnessed the deaths of family members, endured sleepless nights of bombing and fighting, and now live in constant fear and uncertainty.
This Halloween, show the children of Syria that they have not been forgotten.”
Their website contains all sorts of resources to help you celebrate #ANightOfHope as well as the invitation to text HEART to 70060 to donate £5 to WorldVision
