Finally, we have a direct connection with people in Aleppo, Syria!!! 
Thousands of children, many of them newly orphaned, have fled the horrors of Aleppo. They are hungry, cold and terrified after months under siege and bombing. We can provide Syrian children and their families with warm clothes, food, and clean water. Please pay for items from their GOODdler wish list, and we will deliver them locally: http://gooddler.com/Wishlist/10141

More than 11 million Syrians — nearly half of the country’s population — have been displaced either within the country or to other nations.

Over 1.1 million Syrian children are refugees. Some were fortunate enough to be accompanied in flight by both parents. Many lost their fathers to the violence that has killed more than 250,000 Syrians since the fighting began in 2011. Still others are without any immediate family to look after them.

SNHR has published the report “Children of Syria… Angels with Broken Wings” documenting the violations committed by all conflict parties involved in the Syria conflict.

The plight of Syrians displaced by civil war grew worse in 2016 as the fighting in that country continued with no significant hope on the horizon for peace.

Humanitarian organizations and governments are desperately trying to address the needs of the vulnerable children — but much more needs to be done if we are to avert a catastrophe.

Children have access to protection because countries like Lebanon and Jordan have welcomed them.

The unwavering commitment of neighboring countries to tackle the monumental task of supporting hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugee children must be matched by international solidarity.
