In the Washokani refugee camp, the average age of its inhabitants is just over eighteen. Most of those who seek refuge in this huge complex of canvas tents are under the age of ten. It is one of the youngest populations on the planet. Many of them have not known a day of peace since they came to this world. The war in northern Syria has affected all age ranges of the population, but especially the youngest. Those who were born in a country already destroyed by the conflict, do not see the end of the conflict, thus mortgaging their future to a peace that does not come.
