Thank you to all those who purchased gifts from The Body Shop's Christmas and Ramadan gift set collections. You are helping refugee children affected by the war in Syria to heal through play.
By purchasing a gift from The Body Shop's gift set collection, shoppers contributed to our Peace Play Project for Syrian refugee children for one year in Shatila refugee camp in Lebanon.
The gift of play for Syrian refugee children
Take a look at how your gift will support young Syrian refugees to cope with the trauma of war and be children again.
A safe space to play
The Peace Play Project provides a safe space to play for children like Bayan. She is six years old and had to leave her home in Syria because of the war. She now lives in Lebanon in a one-bedroom flat, which has no natural light, along with her family of six. She can't go to school.
Bayan loves coming to our Peace Play Project, which we run with Basmeh and Zeitooneh. Her mum tells us she always comes home really happy. You helped support our Peace Play Project with every gift set bought from The Body Shop's Christmas 2017 and Ramadan 2018 gift collections.
We'd like to thank The Body Shop and everyone who purchased gifts to support our project, which will make a huge difference for child refugees from war.
