Six-year old boy offers Syrian boy a home and family

Remember the horrific photo of the little Syrian boy orphaned by the dreadful happenings in Syria - the picture which drew the world's attention to what is of course just the tip of the iceberg amongst thousands of traumatically affected and damaged children?

How lovely is this .....

Be good if it can happen for that little boy to go live with that family, but what about all the other children orphaned by wars all over the world, the ones we dont hear about but we know they exist.  We got to hear about that poor little boy because a journalist was there and took photos and the whole world felt sorry for him, but there hundreds, thousands more children all over the world orphaned and suffering and dying because of wars and famine.  What happens about all of them? sadd
