A Photo That Shows the Scale of Suffering in Syria

To the World Leaders who have responsibility as the guardian of democracy on earth:

The children of Adam are the limbs of one body – That share an origin in their creation
When one limb passes its days in pain – The. other limbs cannot remain easy
You who feel no pain at the suffering of others – It is not fitting for you to be called human

 

Refugee camp in Damascus, Syria

It is a scene of unimaginable desolation – a crowd of men, women and children stretching as far as the eye can see into the war-devastated landscape of Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria. This was the queue for aid at a UNRWA distribution point in the capital, Damascus, on 31 January. The UN relief agency has distributed more than 7,000 food parcels in the Palestinian camp, home to about 160,000 people, since 18 January. The UN has reported infant malnutrition in the community, which has been reduced to eating animal feed. As of this week, all aid distributions have been suspended because of security concerns. Chris Gunness, a spokesperson, said UNRWA had received assurances that a deal allowing humanitarian access to Yarmouk would be implemented as soon as possible. He said: “They have suffered enough.”
