Child Protection: “I Belong to You” campaign to integrate children with disabilities into community – Nabd Community Center, Sweida

“I’m thrilled I learned ways to integrate my brother with the rest of the kids,” said an adolescent girl who participated in the awareness sessions campaign carried out by the Syrian Society for Social Development (SSSD), in cooperation with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), under the title I Belong to You, all conducted at the Nabd Community Center in Salkhad, Sweida.


Sessions have been seasoned with a series of recreational activities for children and adolescents that embody the content of the campaign, namely to integrate people with disabilities with normal people in the community.


At the end of a session, an adolescent boy said: “I used to hear terms like ‘people with disabilities’ and ‘people with special needs’, not knowing the difference, thinking they were identical! After the sessions, however, I learned something new that enabled me to distinguish between the two terms.”
