* UNICEF: Recent violence damages schools
* 02 min 10 secs

This is all that remains of the Baghdad Girls primary School in Iraq’s Sadr City. Opened just a few short months ago, this building was meant to be a space for girls to receive a quality education and a small respite from the insecurity gripping their country. But recent clashes between military forces and Iraqi militias changed all that, putting this school and the children’s lives in harms way.

Zainab Kadhum, Headmistress of the Baghdad School:
“We started to send them home 10 at a time. We were waiting for the first 10 girls to arrive home before sending the second batch and so on until all children were home safely. We locked the door of the school and we went home. At 5 o clock we heard the sound of the rocket, but, we did not know if the target were our homes or the school. Then we realized it was the school that was hit.”

More than 29 schools were damaged in the fighting and an estimated 2,600 people were injured. The streets of Sadr City are relatively quiet for now, but even as Iraqis go about their day, they know that another clash can happen at any moment.

Sana, 12 years old:
“We wish that our school was rebuilt again. If you look at the walls, you feel they’re fall down. We want to study and do our examinations at ease. We cannot think about studies anymore, it’s a very difficult time for us.”

UNICEF has set out to rebuild the damaged schools, but many of these buildings were already in poor condition before the fighting and with the extensive damage done, these efforts will take time. Helping these children heal, however, will take even longer.
