Syria Assad Regime deliberately targeted children!
Syria’s children’s basic rights was denied (food, water & medicine), they are suffering in silence!
“Syria’s children have been silently witnessing and experiencing the horrors of the war and its consequences for more than three years. Many have not been to school for years. But they are the future of Syria and we need to offer them hope and support”, said ECHO’s Jane Lewis. The conflict in Syria has lasted for three years, eight months and five days – the biggest humanitarian crisis of our times. It has caused immense human suffering and children are the biggest victims.
“These children are deprived of the very basic rights the Convention is meant to guarantee, including the right to go to school and the right to protection”, said ECHO’s Jane Lewis.
At least 1.6 million children have fled the conflict, and become refugees in neighbouring countries, while more than five million children are in need of humanitarian assistance.
“With every day that goes on in this conflict, Syrian children are denied the little big things that make up childhood; the safety of home, the comfort of friends to play with, dreaming about the future while enjoying the present. All of that is put on hold or erased forever because someone, somewhere, decided this was not a priority”, said Roger Hearn, of Save the Children.
