A Message of Peace From Peruvian Children to the Children of Syria
Last Saturday, April 15, 2018, members of the ETSA Cooperation Circle in Lima, Peru met to pray for peace to return to Syria, following the recent acts of violence and conflict that have shaken the entire world.
In the video above, there are Peruvian children who send a message of peace to their fellow human beings in Syria. These children who appear in the video are also children who suffer from violence on a daily basis. They are children abandoned by their parents, or whose parents have died or are imprisoned. (Thanks to Michael and Yaneth, two members of ETSA who related their stories to us.)
Many people were shocked when they heard about the seriousness of the conflict in Syria. The children used stones on the floor to convey their message. These children live in the locality known as El Callao, a very dangerous and impoverished community where members of ETSA carry out voluntary work teaching the children the importance of peace.
