Behind Barbed Wire, Shakespeare Inspires a Cast of Young Syrians - NYTimes.com

"In later scenes, the king was heckled by the Fool, who wore a rainbow-colored wig, and eight boys performed a choreographed sword fight with lengths of plastic tubing. A few scenes from “Hamlet” were spliced in, making the story hard to follow. And at one point, a tanker truck carrying water roared by, drowning out the actors and coating the audience in a cloud of dust.
But the mere fact that the play was performed was enough for the few hundred spectators. Families living in nearby tents brought their children, hoisting them on their shoulders so they could see.
After Lear’s descent into madness and death, the cast surrounded the audience, triumphantly chanting “To be or not to be!” in English and Arabic. The crowd burst into applause, and a number of the leading girls broke into tears. Mr. Bulbul said they were overwhelmed because it was the first time anyone had clapped for them.”

This is such a cool story.

The number of explosive TNT barrels used by the government forces in shelling different Syrian cities and provinces has exceeded the 5,375 barrels, which claimed the lives of more than 6,493; almost 97% of them were civilians. It also caused the destruction of no less than 5,840 buildings, including schools, hospitals, mosques and churches as most of the barrels were thrown over residential neighborhoods

The Project: The National Syrian Project for Prosthetic Limbs 
Our Vision: The project aims to restore amputees’ normal life and make them active members of the society.

Description 
The Syrian national project for artificial limbs is non-profit and non-political independent humanitarian medical charity established in August 2012. The project is the result of a vigorous effort and cooperation between a group of Syrian doctors, some independent and some belong to a prestigious medical bodies such as the Syrian British Medical Society ( SBMS) in the United Kingdom and Syrian Expatriate Medical Association ( SEMA) in France. 
Our goal is to provide complete service to the patient starting from the early stages of psychological support , physical therapy, fitting of prosthesis and gait training to social rehabilitation and helping patients to return to their previous work and be engaged as an active member in the community.
The project is an institute that operate according to its democratic by-laws. The financial support is mainly derived from charities registered in UK (Syria Relief) and France (SEMA). This enables the project to provide its services free of charge to any Syrian amputee in need without any discrimination. 
The project uses a modified Jaipur Foot technique to manufacture the artificial lower limbs. The technique depends mainly on converting low cost drain pipes into a limb skeleton. Feet and articulated knees are then added as needed. Please see links:

The Scratched Lens: Taken from the Frontline Freelance Register.

Mani is a freelance documentary filmmaker and a photojournalist. After having been graduated in Arabic Literature and History in Paris, he settled in Damascus, Syria for three years to pursue his studies. Later, he returned to France to teach in primary schools during eight years. Then, he decided to come back to his interest for photography and the world starting a new career as a freelance photojournalist in Niger, India and Pakistan. Since 2011, he has mainly focused on the war in Syria and started to work as a filmmaker. His still photography appeared in publications such as Paris Match, Le Monde, The Guardian, The Sunday Times Magazine, Die Zeit or the National Geographic Magazine. He regularly works on assignment for ITN/ Channel 4 News as a filmmaker and his films have been aired by national and international broadcasters such as Channel 4, CNN, CBS, France 2, Canal+ and ZDF. His first film in Syria, ‘Horror of Homs’ (produced by ITN/Channel 4 News), won five international awards in 2012 such as the Royal Television Society Award, the Rory Peck Award, the Amnesty International Media Award, the Front Line Club Award and the Foreign Press Association Award. It has also been nominated for a BAFTA TV Award in 2013. His still photography from Homs (Syria) also won the Humanitarian - Visa d’or Award and was exhibited at the International Festival for Photojournalism in Perpignan (France) in Sept 2012. 

The Scratched Lens:  Mani is a serious bad ass. Getting into Syria in the first place is not the easiest accomplishment to achieve. But having a well balance of video, stills, and audio is outstanding. In the next series of posts I will publish some of Mani’s work.

Awareness & Prevention Through Art (AptART) is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to give vulnerable children an artistic experience with an opportunity to express themselves as well as an outlet to build awareness and promote prevention about the issues that affect their lives. All children regardless of their circumstances should be given an opportunity to participate in the arts.

AptART holds exhibitions both locally and internationally displaying artwork created by children participating in projects. Proceeds from the exhibitions are returned back to AptART to fund future projects. In this particular case, we’re looking at AptART’s work in Zaatari, the fifth-largest ‘city’ in Jordan, and the not-so-temporary home of 130,000 Syrian refugees.

On an unsuspecting, breeze-block building, sat along a dirt path, you can enjoy a colourful painting of two white houses shaking hands, with a banner of Arabic script saying ‘My house is your house’. It’s a sentiment that defies local Jordanian-Syrian tension but is designed to at least try and make a difference. And all created by local children, alongside award-winning Spanish graffiti artist Ruben Sanchez. This painting was part of a four-month trip to Jordan in January, when Ruben took part in the art project, designed to improve the environment and prospects of thousands of Jordanian and Syrian children, and get them working together. Here is just a glimpse at some of the resulting work.

#WithSyria

The #WithSyria campaign will launch in thirty five countries as we approach the anniversary of the Syria conflict on the 15th of March, amassing an unprecedented popular movement in solidarity with those caught in the conflict. A collective appeal will be launched by global organisations and key individuals calling on political leaders to sign up to a pledge to do everything they can to make this the last anniversary marked by bloodshed.

A series of actions will highlight the call built around the global release of “With Syria” balloons by children from around the world, the lighting up of iconic buildings, messages of solidarity from high profile individuals, and a campaign video taking inspiration from Banksy’s image of hope.

For more information on how you can take part in these vigils, visitwww.with‑syria.org.
