Ateib


Ateib is Oumar’s brother, and lives near their cousin and great friend, Ali in a refugee camp. He has lost his village, and his father. He draws what he knows: soldiers and flowers. The most heartbreaking thought about the two very different sides of his drawing is that almost every child in his camp has seen some form of the soldier during their childhood, but many may not remember the flowers of Darfur. Ateib, like so many innocent children, will suffer for generations. Their lives, and their future, has changed completely because they have been targeted simply because of who they are.
