The playground of St. Barnabas Church in Klang, Malaysia, rings with children’s shrieks and laughter. Children clad in the navy-and-white uniforms that signify ElShaddai Refugee Learning Centre arrive in shuttles to join their friends. Girls in white hijabs chat while sitting on seesaws. Groups of boys stand in circles playing a game pushing each other off-balance. Another group of girls plays jump-rope with a makeshift rope made of rubber bands as a crowd of younger students watches.
