Iconic image represents 'grim reality' of Syria Crisis

Gavin Crowden, World Vision UK's Head of Policy and Public Affairs said:

"We are all heartbroken by the picture of five-year-old Omran. No boy, no child should ever need to be pulled from the rubble of an airstrike. But this is the grim reality of the Syrian crisis for its children.

When we see Omran's picture it becomes so clear why families are forced to make treacherous journeys to seek safety for their children. Syria's children need a political solution to the crisis - now in its sixth bloody year.

World Vision is calling for an immediate, weekly 48-hour ceasefire in the besieged city of Aleppo to enable children and their families to leave and let aid get to those left in the city."
