أودت الحرب الأهلية في سوريا حتى الآن بحياة نحو نصف مليون سوري، من الأطفال وكبار السن، النساء والمقاتلين الشباب. الأهم من ذلك كله، فقد تركت هذه الحرب وراءها الكثير من الدمار وهناك نحو 4.6 مليون لاجئ سوري خارج البلاد يتجولون بين مخيمات اللاجئين في لبنان، العراق، الأردن، وأوروبا. وهم مجبرون على التكيف مع حياة اللاجئين البائسة والمريرة، والتكيف مع حياة جديدة، وهم يفتقرون الآن إلى كل شيء.

فنان سوري، مجهول الاسم، متخصص في فن "البوب"(POP) وله مدونه فنية، Sainthoax، وجد طريقة فريدة لتحقيق حلم العديد من الفتيات السوريات، والتي قطعت الحرب الدموية في وطنهن طفولتهن وقدرتهن على الحلم، اللعب مع الدمى، والتنكر إلى أميرات ديزني.

وقد قرر الفنان كبادرة إنسانية وفنية العمل على مشروع ألعاب، ألبس من خلاله عشرات الفتيات السوريات في مخيم للاجئين السوريين في عكار، وفي لبنان، بملابس أميرات ديزني وصورهم صورا لمشروع صور رائع بشكل خاص.

نقدم لكم بعضا من الأحلام البريئة للأطفال والأيتام الغلابة في سوريا:

Bayan (age 12) chose the Sleeping Beauty dress because it reminded her of a similar dress that she once had. When Bayan and her family left their home 3 years ago, they had to leave everything behind. That was the last time she ever saw her pink dress. Raghad (age 12) loves Frozen because it highlights the relationship between two sisters. She's extremely attached to her sister and would do anything to protect her, just like Elsa. Mona (age 11) has 2 favorite princesses, Jasmine and Belle. She chose Jasmine because she’s an Arabian princess, and Belle because of her intelligence. Both princesses are strong and adventurous and Mona relates to that. Bayan, Raghad and Mona all met in the camp 3 years ago. They became close friends ever since. Their dream is to become teachers. @malaakngo @plastikstudios #OnceUponAWar

As a result of the Syrian civil war, 4.6 million Syrians have become refugees. As a Syrian citizen myself and as a human, I felt the need to help. MALAAK, an NGO providing aid and education for Syrian refugees, granted me with the privilege to collaborate with a group of girls who are temporarily residing in a refugee camp in Akkar, Lebanon. “Once Upon a War” is the outcome of my life-altering encounter with these girls. Most of them never got the chance to play pretend because their reality is over dominating. It is why @PlastikStudios and I decided to throw a costume party in the camp. They got to dress up as their favorite Disney princesses and talk about their aspirations. These girls are real life heroines and I am honored that I got the chance to dream with them. As a celebration of International Women’s Day (March 8), we wanted the girls to document their lives over the next week. We gave them a Snapchat workshop, and they will be taking over my Snapchat account ( SaintHoax ) starting tomorrow to share their stories with the world. How you can help: Due to war and displacement, the education of most refugee girls is disrupted. This often leads to sexual and gender-based violence, increased risks of exploitation, and early marriage/pregnancy. It’s highly important to educate and empower girls in refugee camps.
