Five years ago, you most likely graduated from university, went on a vacation or celebrated Eid with family and friends. Life for us was normal and continues to be normal. However, five years ago, the children of Syria had to carry what little belongings they could to walk across borders into foreign countries. They have yet to return. The death and destruction that has taken place over the last five years in Syria is truly horrific. Millions have been displaced inside the country or become refugees in neighbouring countries. With over 300,000 people dead and millions injured or disabled, there is hardly a Syrian family who hasn’t been devastated by the tragedy. We need to continue helping.
