Willocq has teamed up with the international organization Save the Children to tell heart-wrenching stories in pictures about the human experiences of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley.Juxtaposing human elements with art cinema-style sets, Willocq's photos manage to express the desires, dreams, setbacks and uncertainties of Syrian children seeking asylum in the informal Anjar refugee settlement. Commissioned as part of Save the Children's international campaign #EveryLastChild, the series of four photos was staged and produced over a period of three weeks. This is just one of many projects commissioned by Save the Children Lebanon to make enrolling or continuing formal schooling more applicable for Syrian refugee children: 119 nonformal classrooms were established across the country, Lebanese and Syrian teachers participated in training workshops on positive discipline, classroom management and multigrade instruction, and the Early Childhood Care and Development program was extended to adequately respond to the neglected needs of preschool children aged 3-5 years.
