“Despite the terrible years of conflict that have marked the population, life in the camp is improving thanks to small moments of joy. Young people improvise dances, organize karaoke, girls go to mass singing and dancing, others go to the hairdresser. They try to hold on to their still too rare moments of respite. So yes, children and young people continue to smile but they all carry heavy traumas.” - @emin_ozmen
