Syrian Arab Republic, 2016: Abdulaziz (in red), 10, whose father was killed in the continuing conflict, spends time with his friends at the ‘Land of Childhood’ – two basements linked with a tunnel to create an underground playground that gives children a relatively safe place to have fun in their besieged area. “My mom doesn’t allow me to play in the street with the neighbours’ children but when she learnt that this place is underground she let me come here to play,” Abdulaziz said.
