By taking advantage of the world's Pokemon Go craze, the RFS hopes to capture the world's attention and focus it on the disadvantaged youth in Syria.
One designer, Saif Aldeen Tahhan, has said, “The world has become obsessed with this video game, so I told myself why not use it as a medium to convey our suffering."
The RFS says that they want to “remind people across the world that children in Syria should be playing, not having to think where the next barrel bomb will drop, or where to get their next meal.”
