How to protect your children from the dangers of celebratory shooting  

📣This message is shared though the UNHCR WhatsApp communication tree📣

Every year children fall victim to celebratory shooting in Lebanon. To keep them safe, educate your children about the related dangers and teach them to go inside and stay away from windows and balconies when they hear shooting.  

We recommend you watch this short video by UNICEF with your children to raise their awareness about celebratory shooting and how to keep safe.
