After a deadly airstrike led by the US which has killed at least 73 Syrians civilians, children are using the popularity of the recently released pokemon go app to attract attention to their situation.
Some of the photo which were posted by the Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office, are of children who are posing with images of popular Pokémon characters, which bear heartbreaking captions such as “Come save me.”
Since war broke out in Syria in 2011 it is thought that a staggering 470,000 people have died with a further 1.5 million being wounded which works out to 11.5% of the Syrian population being wounded or killed.
There are currently 4.7 million refugees in neighboring countries and more than 13.5 million who are still in need of assistance. There is no doubt that what is going on in Syria is a massive crisis of which the magnitude is hard to comprehend. At times like this I would encourage you to remain compassionate to their circumstances and give in any way you can.
