#savesyriaschildren you can make a difference in Syria

Save the Children are running a campaign to highlight the plight of children in Syria and the atrocities they are living through.  I felt powerless to do anything to help the situation in Syria and have been praying my heart out; well now we have something concrete we can all do to help the children there.  Let me hand over to save the children themselves:

Horrific crimes against children are being committed in Syria’s conflict. Boys and girls are being killed, maimed and tortured. These appalling violations against children must stop, and those carrying them out held to account. All sides fighting in Syria must know crimes against children will be exposed to the world.  Join us in calling on UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to ensure the UN and its member states are doing all they can to make sure every crime against children is counted and their perpetrators held to account.
By making it clear to the perpetrators that the world is watching – that they will be held to account for their crimes - we can help put massive pressure on them to stop.

If you would like information on how you can donate to the Save the Children appeal then please visit their website
