10 million people in urgent need of aid inside Syria over 300,000 deaths
Syria’s ongoing conflict, now in its 5th year, has torn apart countless families. Entire communities have been uprooted, scattering large populations within Syria and driving over 5 million people into surrounding countries.
For many people trapped inside Syria, the scarcity of food is an even greater threat to their lives than bombs and snipers. 3 million people are living in besieged areas, where nothing can get in or out. Children are dying of starvation, and people are reduced to eating dogs and cats. Lack of adequate nutrition makes people more prone to disease and less able to cope with injuries, leading to an endless cycle of death.
