“ARE THEY OURS? ”
“ARE THEY MATTRESSES?”
“BUT CAN WE KEEP THEM?”
“AND CAN WE CHOOSE THE COLOUR?”
“I, I, I WANT TO CARRY IT AND I WANT TO SHOW IT TO MY MUM!”
“CAN I TAKE THE ONE WITH FLOWERS, THAT PINK ONE? AND MY SISTER THAT GREEN ONE, NO BLUE, NO SHE WANTS THE LIGHT BLUE ONE! ”
These are the first sentences in Arabic that we heard said to us 2 days ago, when the mattresses were delivered.
And with the eyes our children have on Christmas morning, on their birthday, when they get a new bike, the latest model of the Xbox, Elsa’s costume or a new tennis racquet, they say hello, they thank you, they tell you that those mattresses are just beautiful !!!!
Many of them, after months, will have a bed on which to sleep and no longer a worn carpet that becomes damp with the rain.
We’re talking about mattresses, do you understand?
We’re talking about mattresses …
Thanks to all those who have made all this possible with their donations. The amount was not totally covered but very little was missing, but it does not matter, Support Syrian Children volunteers did the rest.
