A Dutch municipality appointed an 11-year-old Palestinian-Syrian girl as a mayor representing children in the municipality.
The children’s mayor Samuel Heuil and the mayor of the municipality Raine Melissan said Palestinian child Lulia Hamid will be performing several tasks in favor of her community.
Lulia’s family fled war-torn Syria since the outbreak of the conflict in 2011.
Hundreds of displaced Palestinian refugees in/from Syria have achieved success stories, despite the traumatic upshots wrought by the daily scenes of bloodshed and destruction across the embattled Syrian territories.
This includes scores of refugee students who have obtained the highest scores at their academic institutions; hundreds of refugee sportsmen/sportswomen who snatched the first places in regional and international competitions; dozens of artists who received renowned literary awards for their products and performances; and several housewives who turned trauma into a space of creativity.
