Gharam and her family are from Aleppo. Her favourite colours are red and yellow and she dreams of becoming a doctor. When asked about The Peace Play Project, she said "I love it, A LOT". This is the only place for her to play safely and make friends. Gharam gets very excited for every session.
Leena's family fled Syria with only the clothes they were wearing. She has been in camp for five years now. It's crowded and the streets are too dangerous to play outside. The peace Play Project is the only time Leena gets to play with other children outside of ther family and become the outgoing little girl she is.
