I first set foot in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, in 2008 when I came to begin my college education. Life in the city was quite different from what I was used to in the village.

How do you console a child who has become a victim of war? How does one console a child who has lost almost everything - from her parents, friends,home, limbs etc. in a war that she understands nothing about? It is heart breaking to see children as young as one month wail helplessly in Gaza hospitals with injuries incurred after someone threw a missile to them. It is even choking to see a lifeless body of a child who can't defend himself or herself lay by the roadside or in...
