The children were used to a stable life in a wealthy country. Admittedly their dad work long back-breaking hours and they only had their basic requirements. But as children they didn’t understand when their domiciliary lives became nomadic. Their parents uprooted them with little notice to trudge across the burning desert, which became freezing at night. They felt frightened, disorientated and missing Egyptian friends.
They were scared when the river in front of them became two high walls of water and they had to walk through the middle on the dry river bed. Hunger like they have never known gripped their stomachs, a thirst in the dry desert clawed at their throats and still they walked and walked away from everything that they had ever known into an unknown future..
It isn’t just modern children who become refugees!
