“I saw bombs, I saw buildings falling down, houses on fire, people slaughtered, I even saw a man with a bullet in his head and blood on the streets. It is hard, I can’t forget because I saw it with my own eyes. I did not know what was going on. My mother took us, and we fled.” – Ali, oldest of 5 brothers and the breadwinner of the family
As I look at pictures of Syrians in their current war conditions, I was in a daze. At one glance, you’d know they went through a lot before taking their last breath but if it was not for the blood and debris they were covered in, I could’ve sworn they were sleeping peacefully with the expression they have on their faces.
Due to the large number of casualties during the Civil War, there are no precise figures of how badly Syrians have been suffering but approximately 500,000 have died and that’s not taking into account of those who are physically disabled. Those who weren’t injured in the war would’ve suffered a loss be it a job, a home or a loved one.
The war has caused many destructions and sufferings. 82.5% of the population already lived below the poverty line as of early 2014. 6 million internally displaced people are trapped in Syria – many without jobs, homes and even lack access to basic survival need such as water, food and medical services. The latter has caused many worries as based on an estimation, most Syrians are dying due to diseases rather than the fighting.
In response, World Vision set a mission to ensure that the people in Syria would be given the chance to see a better tomorrow by hoping to provide them with food, shelter and comfort. However, they would need your help to make a change.
