The Boy Who Dreams of Rebuilding Aleppo.

Capture

Yes, THIS is the city of Aleppo – the spirit of its people. How I love this story!

It is a story about a 13-year-old boy, Mohammed Qutaish, who does not want to flee Syria – instead he dreams of growing up to become an architect to rebuild the ruins of Aleppo.

He still hasn’t given up hope of a better future – even though the reality of living in Aleppo is sometimes worse than living in a nightmare. In his home inside the devastated city he creates his own world using paper, paint and a glue gun.
