ziad, age 4 / by Maranie Staab

ziad, age 4, is one of an estimated 1,500,000 syrian refugees currently living in lebanon. this means that 1 in every 4 people in the country is a syrian refugee.
i had the pleasure of meeting these children last week while working with a christian church that was providing aid to refugees -- muslims and christians alike (something that we don't hear much of in today's media that prefers to further hateful and sectarian dialogue). like so many of the worlds displaced, ziads future remains decidedly uncertain
