Syrian children sing their way to better health and hygiene

April 12, 2010

“'We are trying to teach a new approach [to hygiene], to find new dynamics that can catch the attention of the kids,' said Beatriz Garcia, Head of Project for the non-governmental organization Action Against Hunger. 'And the kids seem to enjoy the workshop, the songs, the plays.' Health workshops such as the ones run by Action Against Hunger are a critical part of the support that UNICEF and the European Union provide to the Syrian education system as it responds to the influx of Iraqi refugees."
