Waring Artists Sketch Portraits for a Kinder World


Last Special Day, Waring students participated in Memory Project's Portraits for Kindness campaign, making sketches of Syrian refugee children.

The portraits, they drew from photographs, were then flown halfway around the world and shared with the children who posed for a picture.

More than twelve million Syrians have been killed or forced from their homes by the Syrian Civil War. Those that were able to escape now struggle to survive in refugee camps.

These portraits by Waring Students are a small gesture that says that people around the world care and will fight for their future.

As an expression of gratitude, Memory Project created the following powerful thank you for Waring students.
