    The Lebanese capital Beirut is hosting an exhibition titled Haneen (or Longing) highlighting the plight of Syrian refugee children.

    Artists exhibiting here have tried to interpret the poems of young refugees through art.

    The exhibition aims to raise awareness of the challenges and trauma suffered by millions of displaced children, and the long-lasting damage they have to deal with.
