Childhood under siege. Living and dying in besieged areas of Syria.

A new report from Save the Children reveals in shocking detail the horror of family life in cities and towns under siege in Syria. The report estimates that more than 250,000 children have been in constant fear for their lives for many months in Syria’s besieged areas. Parents testify to not only dealing with the psychological impact on children terrified of explosions, but the dire consequences of being deprived of food, basic medicine and clean water.
