This is a story about three children who are selling toys in Syria's Idlib to provide for their family.

The siblings Dara, Tamer and Asma were displaced along with their family from a village in rural eastern Idlib by increased shelling and air attacks.

They fled in an ambulance, which took them to another village before they settled in a damaged building in Idlib city.

Their father was injured when their home was hit by shelling, leaving one of his arms paralysed. He is now struggling to find a job because of his injury.

According to UNICEF, approximately 5 million children in Syria are currently in need of humanitarian aid, and 2.6 million are internally displaced. At least 2.8 million children are currently out of school.
