In “Why are Syrian children holding photos of Pokemon Go characters?The Christian Science Monitor reports that desperate Syrian civilians living in the civil war-torn country, are capitalizing on the global craze over the smartphone game “Pokemon Go.” A social media campaign that features Syrian children holding pictures of Pokemon characters aims to remind the world of the suffering of Syria’s adolescents. “Photos have been a powerful tool for raising awareness about the plight of Syrian children during the course of the on-going five-year humanitarian crisis and civil war in the country.” This is “a cry for the world not to forget about the children of Syria.”
