Syria's children under siege

Syria's children are paying a terrible price as the conflict enters a fourth year. They have borne the brunt of horrific violence and witnessed unspeakable abuse. Millions have lost loved ones, schools and homes. 

Inside Syria, up to a million children are living under siege. They live in areas that UNICEF and other aid organisations are unable to reach regularly.

Another year of hurt could mean the loss of an entire generation – with devastating consequences for the future of Syria and the region. These children need your support now.  

Why we must do more

UNICEF is there whenever and wherever children are in danger, responding rapidly with life-saving aid and protection. We will not rest until we reach every Syrian child affected by this terrible tragedy. 

UNICEF urgently needs more than £500 million for our work for Syrian children in 2014. But so far, we have received just 12 per cent of what we need. 

The support we provide to the children of Syria this year could shape Syria's future and that of the entire region. We deaparately need more funds if we want to deliver vital aid to Syria's children.
