Living in a place where the ticking off of a bomb is as regular as drinking water, implementing coping mechanisms is very important.
Abdullah, a father of a four-year-old girl living in Idlib, Syria, has created a game to make it easy for his daughter, Selva, to deal with the sound of bombs.
Living in war-torn Syria means bombs can go off at any time.
Abdullah’s game is centred around the sound of bombs, each time one goes off, he and his daughter laugh.
This serves as a coping mechanism for the four-year-old, so she doesn’t get scared and cry.
