After seeing footage of the crises in the Middle East, I knew I had to make a drawing to spread awareness. This is a Syrian refugee orphan, saved by foreign volunteer organizations in the area. Here is an excerpt from an article: ?In a report published on Tuesday, Britain?s International Development Committee (IDC) said it is particularly concerned about the plight of refugee children who have been left to fend for themselves in Europe. The IDC warned many of these youngsters are vulnerable to prostitution, child labor and the drugs trade. UK charity Save the Children estimates at least 26,000 lone refugee children entered Europe in 2015.? Please donate if you can. Here?s an organization that addresses this issue.
