Make Sure People Trapped Inside Syria Have Enough to Eat
The news reports were horrifying.
Driven by starvation, desperate Syrians in the besieged town of Madaya foraged for grass and herbs, their last source of nutrition, to make soup. They hadn’t had real food — bread, rice or vegetables — for weeks.
A local doctor reported that hunger had killed a number of residents, and that hundreds more were suffering from malnutrition in the town, where food stocks had been all but exhausted. Children were particularly vulnerable.
Following a negotiated ceasefire, UNHCR — the UN Refugee Agency — was able to truck in much needed food, blankets and medicine on a bitterly cold winter night.
We must make sure that the more than six million Syrians trapped inside their country have the food and other necessitates they need — winter, spring, summer and fall.

I am outraged that Syrians trapped in their country, driven by starvation, were forced to forage for grass and herbs for nutrition.
That should never happen. Anywhere. In this century.
