· · · Sula (blue head scarf),12, could easily get away with not fasting during Ramadan, but she and most of her young friends are determined to fast anyway. Today they are painting decorations on the outside walls of the community bathrooms in their district of Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan. “Doing this project helps us keep our minds off fasting,” says Sula, a refugee from a village outside of Dara’a, Syria who just finished painting a big, pink jelly fish. She and all the young children are proud to be adding a splash of colour and their own personal touch to their home away from home.
