You can see similar scenes anywhere in the world, but these children are in Homs, a key battleground in the Syrian conflict.
Playing with toys like Lego and talking to the children is just one of the ways the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) – a partner to the British Red Cross – gives emotional and psychological support to children living through the war.
It brings some fun and a brief respite to children who have already seen more than most.
