Caracal offical and updated

A young Caracal bounds out of the desolation and destruction that lies behind it. The Caracal is a big cat native to the Middle East and Northern Africa, known for its ability to survive the most brutal, arid desert conditions. It serves as a symbol of the children of this region, a sign of hope. Children have survived some of the most horrific and devastating times of war in this region, and still have the power to go on. Imagery of women surrounds the upper and lower right side of the caracal, symbolizing the role women play in raising the children that will become the leaders of tomorrow; a new, bounding hope.
