“No Comments”: Gracious kids in war-torn countries (Congo)

Posted on May 24, 2012

I loved many pictures of kids in war-torn countries such as Cambodia, the Congo, China, Somalia… who exhibit the spirit of joy and hope in Mimo’s blog: 365 from the archive donotreply@wordpress.com and decided to share them with you.

I selected pictures of kids:

1. From Cambodia, a country that experienced three years of internal genocide by the radical Marxist Khmer Rouge power, 2 million and countless injured and handicapped people

2. From the vast Congo that experienced over 20 years of civil wars and fighting against neighboring countries, and had to deal with million of refugees flocking for “safety” in the genocide perpetrated in Rwanda and Uganda…

The first set of pictures are kids from the Congo, in refugee camps.

This set of pictures were taken in Cambodia after the genocide period:

Note 3: I saw on the news this March 27, 2014, two little Syrian kids (barely 10) retrieving with their dirty hands bread crumbs amid the stones on the seashore. The girl said: “By the time we satisfy some of our hunger, we feel already terribly famished”
