Earlier this year, the Syrian conflict entered its 8th year. Last year, on average 1,731 people fled the country every day to escape the torture, death & suffering which spared nobody. More than 600,000 people have been killed and 13.1 million people are now in need of urgent humanitarian aid, including 5 million children. A total of 69% of civilians in Syria are languishing in extreme poverty.
With an estimated 1.7 million Palestinians crammed into just 140 square miles, Gaza is one of the most crowded places on earth. This ‘open-air prison’ has seen war after war, with thousands of innocent people killed. Some 10% of children under five have had their growth stunted. With 80% of households in Gaza urgently requiring some form of financial assistance, the struggle of the people is indescribable.
The Rohingya are the world’s most persecuted minority. Since last August, more than 700,000 Rohingya refugees have fled a brutal military crackdown against Muslims in Myanmar. They were subject to rape, inhumane torture and extrajudicial killing. 13,759 have been killed, including 1000 children under the age of 5. The suffering has been unimaginable.
In Somalia, there are over 3 million people lacking satisfactory daily meals whilst 800,000 are currently on the brink of famine.
