A DEADLY CONFLICT
In January of 2011, anti government protesters took to the streets of Syria, calling for change and reform. The government of Syria responded to the peaceful demonstrations with excessive force, killing thousands of protesters and injuring many more.
Four years later, the situation had escalated into a brutal war which had affected over twelve million people, of which half are known to be children. The number of children forced to flee Syria had reached over one million, a further two million had been displaced within Syria and tens of thousands of children had been orphaned.
