Last week, one image, one boy, one moment, was elevated above the dozens of moments that have happened every single day in Syria for the past five-and-a-half years.
Much like the photo of Alan Kurdi, the young Syrian refugee who drowned in September last year while trying to reach Europe, the footage of five-year-0ld Omran Daqneesh being rescued from the rubble of his apartment block in Aleppo has encapsulated the wretchedness of the Syrian war and its effect on children.
Every day there are so many Omrans whose images we will never see and whose names we will never know. And unlike lucky Omran, those kids don’t survive.
This is not a hashtag moment. This is not a viral moment. This is a moment that must become a movement to end ongoing children sufferings in Syria.
Let’s work together to save Syrian children. Help us to save & serve them.
