Bride of Peace Syria helps put smiles on childrens’s faces

Moadamiyeh2Like a little miracle and with the help from parents and friends, a magical atmosphere was created for the children and to add a little extra, BRIDGE OF PEACE SYRIA donated some dresses, other costumes, crowns and art supplies and little gifts to add to the party F U N .
