About Hearts for Aleppo
The brutal, five-year old Syrian war has affected 80% of the country's children — 8.4 million young lives shattered by violence, fear, displacement and death. The terrible conflict in besieged cities like Aleppo is increasing their suffering.
The Syrian civilians and children subsist in homes or cities like Aleppo destroyed by war. Others scrape by in temporary camps for years, while even others, including more than 15,000 children separate from families, risk perilous boat rides to Europe. More than 2.8 million children, in and outside of Syria, can’t go to school or have access to basic nutrition and infrastructure.
In response, UNICEF has helped mobilize the largest relief operation in history — providing safe water, nutrition, polio vaccinations, temporary schools and more. But these children’s needs are outgrowing our resources. UNICEF is a branch of the United Nations that focuses on helping children around the world. It has established an emergency relief response for Syria, where a sobering 80% of kids have been affected by the civil war.
We are imploring the American people to not only watch, listen and grieve, but to join us in taking action on behalf of the most vulnerable ― the children of Aleppo. They need us now more than ever. Donations to UNICEF USA’s Syria mission go toward supporting children’s basic needs, including proper medical care, clean water and nutritional food.
