Normally, I write long pieces to make a point. But sometimes, images say far more than anything I could ever write. The civil war in Syria is continuing to rage on. My Facebook feed is full of images of frightened children and their equally frightened parents. In some cases, we don’t know where the parents are or if they are even alive anymore. The following images are from Eastern Ghouta where over 250 civilians were killed in less than 48 hours.
If these images have hurt you, caused something inside you to cry, then your way forward is clear. Stop sharing Facebook statuses, thoughts and prayers, and other things that make you feel good but don’t actually do anything.
I have started a fundraiser for Syria. The aim is to raise $10,000 and donate to the International Rescue Committee, one of the biggest organizations working to help Syrian refugees. Donate HERE to give the gift of love.
If you wish to donate to Doctors Without Borders in order to support medical aid for Syrian civilians trapped in Eastern Ghouta, give HERE.
Only love can save the world. Giving is an act of love.
