As Muslims across the world enjoyed their Eid-ul-Adha celebrations, thousands of Syrian children spent their Eid away from their homes and loved ones.
Before the current violence in Syria, Eid was a time of celebration for children as with anywhere else in the world. Children would wear new clothes, receive Eid money, buy sweets and chocolates and visit relatives.

Islamic Relief spoke to parents and children who fled to Lebanon to escape the violence, and here are some of their stories.
