March 2011- Syria Civil War

Truly the death of one man is a tragedy. The deaths of millions is a statistic.

Since March 2011 a brutal civil war has consumed the residents of Syria killing some 250,000- 400,000 people. An estimated half are believed to be civilians. Some 14,000 children are reported killed. Half the country’s pre-war population- some 11 million people- have been either killed or forced to leave their homes. There are some 4.3 million refugees.

The hope with the Arab Spring pro-democracy uprisings are a distant memory replaced with a ruinous future and loss.

Give generously.
