With much of the attention off of Syria, and onto Ukraine and the Olympics, I thought I would share some photos and information on the present state of the Syrian people.
From the U.N. Relief and Works Agency.
Context: “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-devastasted 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.”
It can be good to take to the streets, but even when such action is necessary… the consequences are long lasting and terrible for everyone.
Consider the following two photos, one of Homs in 2011, and another of the same avenue in 2014, after the devastation.
