For seven years the Syrian people have been bombed, besieged and forced to endure one of the worst humanitarian crises in living memory.
The recent intensification of violence and increase in military offensives has made the situation even more dangerous for ordinary civilians. Ordinary men, women, and children have borne the brunt of this conflict, they continue to suffer a war that does not seem to have an end in sight.
The war continues to impact every aspect of life.
We live in a world where poverty and gender inequality go hand in hand.
- Women and girls have poorer access to food, healthcare, education and paid work.
- Women and girls make up sixty percent of people suffering from chronic hunger.
- Women and girls are more likely to die from natural disasters.
Across the developing world, women and girls have fewer opportunities in life, limiting their potential as individuals and holding back the development of their societies.
The UN has described the war in Syria as the ‘biggest humanitarian and refugee crisis of our time’. Over a period of seven years, more than six million Syrians have been displaced internally and 13 million left in need of humanitarian assistance.
According to the UN 346 civilians have been killed and 878 others have been injured. The UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, has called for an immediate end to the hostilities and described the situation in eastern Ghouta as “hell on Earth”.
Military offensives taking place in Syria over the last few weeks has worsened the humanitarian situation. Since 2013, about 400,000 people have been living under a government-imposed siege in this region. Children make up half of the population of eastern Ghouta and they are bearing the brunt of these attacks.
