After 6 years of war, more than 11 million Syrians have fled their homes. But ultimately, Syria’s conflict is not about numbers, it’s about people. 6 years of conflict. 4.9 million Syrians are refugees. 6.3 million have fled home but remain inside Syria. Stand #WithRefugees http://trib.al/qdJVe1i
This is where Syrian refugees are hosted. Surprise you?
“We must remember those who are suffering most from this calamity – the 4.9 million refugees, the 6.3 million people displaced internally, and the millions more inside Syria living in daily fear of this war and the inhumanity it has created.”
Powerful words from our United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi as we mark 6 years of the Syrian war.
As we mark the 6th anniversary of the Syria conflict, let’s not forget children like Wafaa, and every single one of the 11 million Syrians who have been forced, by bombs, fighting and destruction, to flee their homes.
Please stand with them, please stand #WithRefugees
Wafaa is 8 years old and lives in a temporary shelter in Aleppo. When her house was shelled, a gas cylinder exploded next to her, burning her face.

“We wish to return safely to our home, my children need education, they have already missed 3 years.”
Nuzha holds her children Mustafa, 1, and Hassan, 10, in the Pioneer Camp for internally displaced persons in Tartous, Syria. Her family fled Aleppo four and a half years ago, when the fighting reached their neighbourhood.
