Children under the Sky Now

Commonly referred to as a no-man's land, Al-Tanf has, since 2006, housed some 850 Palestinian refugees who had fled sectarian strife in Iraq. Many of them were children.
The introduction of Capoeira in the camp promoted physical activity and contributed to psychological stabilization.
"Capoeira was central to the dynamic of the camp and was important to the morale of the people there," said Ms. Boualia Head of Mission UNICEF Syria. "Though Al-Tanf has now closed, other problems remain, and Capoeira will likely play a part in alleviating the boredom of refugee children in the future."
