After nearly eight long years of conflict, an entire generation are growing up knowing only the horrors of war. Children in Syria have seen and experienced things that no child ever should.
Bombs have rained down on children's homes. Places that should be areas of safety - like schools, hospitals and playgrounds - have all come under attack. Children are being stripped of their basic rights every day, being denied access to healthcare or an education.
Right now, over a million children are in Idlib, northwest Syria, where another offensive is looming. Many families here have already fled their homes to escape escalating violence. They have been pushed to their limits. And now they risk being on the frontlines again.
With torrential rains flooding thousands of makeshift tents, children who have been forced to flee their homes are now facing a new threat – the deadly cold temperatures.
Children are getting sick and, in the worst-affected areas, families are cut off from the outside world by floodwaters. They are unable to leave camps to access health facilities.
In previous years, young children have frozen to death in the camps – this winter, increased violence has delayed the distribution of tents and blankets to families without shelter, so the risks are even greater.
The scale, severity and complexity of the conflict inside Syria can seem overwhelming. But, beyond the challenging context, there is a simple truth; children are suffering and we can help.
