The depth of suffering is unprecedented. Millions of children in Syria come under attack on a daily basis, their lives turned upside down.

The escalation of violence threatens the lives of 93,000 civilians, including over 40,000 children who have been cut off from regular humanitarian aid for over two years.

This morning, all 47 children trapped in an orphanage in east Aleppo were evacuated to safety, with some in critical condition from injuries and dehydration.

There are no more working hospitals in eastern Aleppo, where more than 100,000 children are trapped under siege and heavy bombardment with dwindling access to food and medicine. They need these hospitals to stay alive. Children should not be dying in hospitals because of bombs and they should not be dying in schools.

The UN is estimating that between 1.2 to 1.5 million people may be affected by the current situation in Mosul. We as UNICEF estimate that at least 50 percent of these people will be children.

These children have been exposed for over two years to probably a lot of atrocities, extreme living conditions and we want to be there for them to provide the psycho-social support, to provide them efforts that give them back a normal life as a child.
