We Walked Together

Out of the belief that every beginning comes to an end and drawing on the importance of conveying the idea to the beneficiaries pertaining closing down some of the centers attached to the Syrian Society for Social Development, SSSD team in partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) organized an event titled “We Walked Together” as a closing ceremony to Al- Mahatah Center for Temporary Care.

The event included diversified shows: a musical performance by Al-Fourqa Al-Nouhasiyyeh, theatre scenes, expressionist and Western dance shows, mental calculations, and some songs. The shows were performed by more than 100 children from the child friendly space at the Al-Mahatah Center.

As part of the closing plan of the center, the team conducted children sessions and activities, asserting the importance of flexibility, adjustment and acceptance of life changes. Concluding the sessions and activities, the team distributed letters of appreciation and thank you notes to the children.

Some of the comments made by the children:
“We trained a lot and exerted huge efforts; today we are proud of ourselves, offering the best and conveying our message to the community.”
“Joining this center, we learnt on day one that cooperation is the foundation of getting anything done, it is the foundation of success. Today at the event this was visible.”
“We are beginning to accept the fact that our trip together is coming to an end. We promise you that we will be successful and distinguished in every aspect of our lives.”
