Syria’s civil war has created the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Half the country’s pre-war population — more than 11 million people — have been killed or forced to flee their homes.
Families are struggling to survive inside Syria, or make a new home in neighboring countries. Others are risking their lives on the way to Europe, hoping to find acceptance and opportunity. And harsh winters and hot summers make life as a refugee even more difficult. At times, the effects of the conflict can seem overwhelming.
The more the public know about the crisis, the more we all can do together to help those in need. The lifesaving work we do, empowering people to survive through crisis and build better lives, is only possible with more knowledge and support.This piece produced for the United Nations featuring mega super star ans UN Ambassador Angelina Jolie helped to make a real difference.
