They say a picture is worth a thousand words. For kids in Iran, drawing pictures gave them a chance to envision their world after COVID-19.
SAT-7 is a Christian satellite television broadcast in the Middle East and North Africa. Parastoo Poortaheri, Presenter with the SAT-7 PARS program Hashtag, says they asked Iranian kids to draw post-pandemic life as a way to celebrate Universal Children’s Day on November 20.
“Especially for children, it might be so hard to stay at home and not have hope about their futures or not have time to hang out with their friends. And of course at SAT-7, we always share the message of hope. So we thought it was necessary to share the message of hope to them and remind them that God is with us.”
They weren’t sure what to expect, but what did kids actually draw? Love. Each picture depicted family or friends or even the whole world together again.
