On 3 June 2017 in the makeshift camp at Ain Issa, 50 km north of the Raqqa in the Syrian Arab Republic, Bilal, 10, arrived in Ain Issa camp with his family three days ago, after a tough two-day journey. "We stayed with a family in the mountains for one night. We were all exhausted from walking and carrying our blankets and food," says Bilal who was forced to drop out of school in Grade 1. More than 6,000 people live in harsh conditions and the numbers continue to rise as violence escalates in the area.
