Six months after the siege of Aleppo ended, a group of 37 orphans is trying to adjust to their new life and home in Jarablus.

About half of the nearly five million refugees who have fled Syria are children, but eight million children remain in the war-torn country, according to the UN.

At the end of 2016, after months of being under siege, tens of thousands of people living in Syria's eastern Aleppo were forced out.

Among them was a group of 37 orphans. Six months later they're trying to adjust to their new life and home in Jarablus. And while the children are celebrating Eid al-Fitr, the festive holiday for Muslims has brought back sorrowful memories.
