Kalila’s* behavior changed completely after she started attending a Christian school in Lebanon. Before, she was one of the many Syrian refugee children left at home with nothing to do. During the day, her father went looking for work and her mother went looking for food or help. Not wanting to leave their children alone to roam the streets, Kalila’s parents locked them in the house. Kalila became so desperate, she began cutting herself and her siblings to get attention.
