Up to date, millions of Syrians have escaped across borders seeking safety. Most seek refuge in Turkey and other neighboring countries such as Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq.
Since December 2019, some 900,000 Syrians are on the run and they are now trapped in Idlib province, Aleppo. The United Nations (UN) reported that these Internally Displaced People (IDP) faced death due to exposure to the harsh winter conditions. Most of which are children and women.
According to Abu Anwar, an official, and resident of the facility near the Syrian-Turkish border, “Mothers are burning plastic to keep their children warm.” Heart-breaking indeed.
