There is one thing that connects all wars – their victims are innocent people.
Tragic events interrupt the quiet life of citizens. Bomb blasts, constant shooting, ruined buildings, and lack of food, drugs and any help – these are the sad realities of armed conflicts. People want to escape somewhere, hide, but sometimes it’s too late. They die in a cruel way in their own homes or in the streets.
It is a pity for all the people who die in the tragedy of war, but the most affected are the children. War takes their childhood and forces them to grow up fast. Toddlers do not know play, laughter and fun. They live in constant fear and arrows and explosions are natural for them. It’s a gray and sad reality that they cannot change, though they really want to.
In the streets of destroyed cities you can find a lot of lost orphans. Their parents died as a result of gunfire or are taking active part in combat. They have nowhere to go or to whom to turn. They often die of hunger or as a result of various illnesses. In such difficult times, no one wants to take them and usually they are doomed to themselves. As you may guess, they do not live alone for a long time. If no one reaches out for them with a helpful hand, their fate will be decided.
