Bana Alabed, the 7-year old Syrian girl, who became famous for tweeting her experiences from the besieged east Aleppo, has written a letter to US President Donald Trump, asking him to save the children of Syria.
It may be recalled that Bana had managed to escape from Aleppo along with her family in December. She crossed the border during the mass evacuations and now lives in Turkey. Bana has high hopes from Trump, as she thinks that he is a powerful man, who can protect the children of Syria. The letter was written some days before Trump was sworn in as the American President.
Bana Alabed’s letter to President Trump:
Dear Donald Trump,
My name is Bana Alabed and I am a seven years old Syrian girl from Aleppo.
I lived in Syria my whole life before I left from besieged East Aleppo on December last year. I am part of the Syrian children who suffered from the Syrian war.
But right now, I am having a peace in my new home of Turkey. In Aleppo, I was in school but soon it was destroyed because of the bombing.
Some of my friends died.
I am very sad about them and wish they were with me because we would play together by right now. I couldn’t play in Aleppo, it was the city of death.
Right now in Turkey, I can go out and enjoy. I can go to school although I didn’t yet. That is why peace is important for everyone including you.
However, millions of Syrian children are not like me right now and suffering in different parts of Syria. They are suffering because of adult people.
I know you will be the president of America, so can you please save the children and people of Syria? You must do something for the children of Syria because they are like your children and deserve peace like you.
If you promise me you will do something for the children of Syria, I am already your new friend.
I am looking forward to what you will do for the children of Syria.
