#SaveSyriasChildren Campaign

That photo.

That photo broke my heart.

I can never unsee that image now, as much I want to.

If you’ve seen it, I’m sure, like me, you were moved beyond immeasurable sadness.

The image saw worldwide outrage at the plight of people fleeing to Europe from the civil war in Syria.

A parent wouldn’t put their child in a boat, unless it was safer than the land.

This crisis has outraged, upset and angered me and unquestionably, the image of that poor, poor little boy washed up on the shore has brought it home, even more.

Because:

That little boy washed up on the shore was only a year younger than my little boy. And that has made the Syria crisis even more poignant for me.

And that is why I wanted to write this post; to share and highlight Save the Children’s appeal and to share ways in which we can help.

The facts speak volumes:

  • More than 10,000 children have been killed; 5.6 million children need humanitarian aid
  • Inside Syria 3.5 million children have been forced from their homes
  • Nearly 2 million children have fled the country and are now living in over-stretched refugee camps or villages
  • 3 million children are unable to go to school (2.3 million inside Syria, 685,000 refugees)
  • 10 million people do not have enough to eat

Something has to be done.

There’s lots that you could do from the comfort of your own home.

Please don’t turn a blind eye.

Do Something to help.

Anything.

Whatever you decide, don’t choose apathy.

  1. To say that your post touched me is an understatement. I am not sitting here in tears thinking of all those poor children and I promise not to turn a blind eye. I have heard bits and pieces of what’s happened but I am really bad at turning on the news much in my house for it’s always so upsetting. Thank you for the beautiful post and the info to get involved. I will be sharing this.
