After more than 8 years of war, thousands are still fighting for their lives every day. We need to act now to help ensure children survive the recent escalation of violence in North-East Syria. Since April, fighting in Syria's Idlib province has intensified dramatically. Hundreds of children and adults have been killed. Children who survive are denied education, food and healthcare. Explosions and hostilities have led to thousands of children and their families having to leave their homes overnight. Some are now stranded in dire conditions in camps. Many have suffered injuries from the fighting.
"An aircraft bombed my school. People died. I was crying ... parents were crying," says Masa*, age 10.
The war in Syria has already claimed too many children's lives, we need to act now.
We are responding by providing essential items such as blankets and winter kits, in order to ensure children and their families survive the violence.
We're working with local partners to diagnose and treat malnourished children and providing families who have lost everything with cash for food. We're scaling up our education response through mobile buses and temporary learning spaces to make sure children can continue their learning despite their circumstances.
